BACKGROUND Some studies showed abnormalities in brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of relapsing neuromyelitis optica (R-NMO) from 12 to 46%. These abnormalities are described as compatible/non-compatible with multiple sclerosis (MS). OBJECTIVE To describe the abnormal brain MRI lesions in R-NMO with imaging studies conducted with more sensitive white(More)
We studied cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) lesions in three women with acute attacks of recurrent longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis (r-LETM), recurrent-optic neuritis (r-ON) and r-LETM-CNS. Neuromyelitis Optica -immunoglobulin (IgG) antibody was positive in all cases. Brain MRI (1.5 Tesla) was performed according to protocol from(More)
Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) has been attributed to different underlying pathological events. The aim of this paper is to present the first case report of a patient with Down's syndrome (DS) who died of a fulminant NMO. A 29-year-old woman with DS developed acute transverse myelitis, with complete visual loss and swollen optic discs. Two days later, she(More)
