We describe the metabolic phenotype on F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET) in a 13-year-old female with myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) antibody–positive encephalitis. Unilateral hemispheric hypometabolism on PET may be the metabolic phenotype of autoimmune epilepsy associated with MOG antibody.
