Objective –  Brain abnormalities in neuromyelitis optica (NMO) attracted much attention. Our study was to identify the brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) abnormalities in Chinese NMO patients. 
Clinical Outcomes of Neuromyelitis Optica with Brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging Abnormalities
TLDR
Clinical outcomes of neuromyelitis optica patients with brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) abnormalities with different distribution patterns of brain lesions are investigated to investigate clinical outcomes of patients with NMO.
Conventional brain MRI in neuromyelitis optica
TLDR
There has not been an attempt to survey and synthesize the literature on neuro‐radiology of brain findings in NMO, but numerous case series have demonstrated that lesions on brain MRI are common in neuromyelitis optica.
Imaging the Visual Pathway in Neuromyelitis Optica
The focus of this paper is to summarize the current knowledge on visual pathway damage in neuromyelitis optica (NMO) assessed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and optical coherence tomography
Cervical cord and ventricle affection in neuromyelitis optica
TLDR
The periventricular system, areas of high aquaporin‐4 expression, are examined by using ventricle volumetry to study the impact on disability in neuromyelitis optica.
Brain abnormalities in neuromyelitis optica
EFNS guidelines on diagnosis and management of neuromyelitis optica
TLDR
The guidelines are designed to provide guidance for best clinical practice based on the current state of clinical and scientific knowledge.
The role of imaging in diagnosing neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder.
Magnetic resonance imaging brain findings in a case of aquaporin-4 antibody-positive neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder, presenting with intractable vomiting and hiccups
TLDR
A case of an adult female who was admitted with intractable vomiting and hiccups is presented, subsequently on MRI brain found to have very tiny demyelinating foci in Area Postrema.
Brain Abnormalities in Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
The incidence and characteristics of the brain lesions found in NMOSD and the symptoms that they cause are focused on.

Brain magnetic resonance imaging findings in relapsing neuromyelitis optica
TLDR
This study demonstrated the brain MRI pattern of R-NMO patients, which is different from MS, with long duration of disease, good sample size and detailed characterization by MRI.
Brain abnormalities in neuromyelitis optica.
TLDR
MRI brain findings in NMO justify revision of diagnostic criteria for NMO to allow for brain involvement, and asymptomatic brain lesions do not exclude the diagnosis of NMO.
Neuromyelitis optica with hypothalamic involvement
TLDR
It is proposed that the currently accepted criteria for the diagnosis of NMO could be revisited to recognize the possibility of lesions developing within hypothalamic structures.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Neuromyelitis Optica
TLDR
NMO can be reliably differentiated from MS at an early stage using validated diagnostic criteria, and the spectrum of NMO is wider than previously appreciated.
Devic's neuromyelitis optica: study of nine cases
TLDR
Clinical, biological, pathological and radiological data of patients with Devic's neuromyelitis optica are described to differentiate DNMO from MS.
Magnetization transfer and diffusion tensor MRI show gray matter damage in neuromyelitis optica
TLDR
Compared to healthy controls, patients with NMO showed reduced MT ratio and increased mean diffusivity of the NAGM, challenging the classic notion of a sparing of the brain tissue in the course of NMO.
Clinical, CSF, and MRI findings in Devic's neuromyelitis optica.
TLDR
It is proposed that Devic's neuromyelitis optica is a distinctive disorder with some clinical, CSF, and MRI features different from those found in classic multiple sclerosis.
Neuromyelitis optica.
TLDR
A systematic review of the literature using MEDLINE was conducted to better understand NMO and its associations with recognized diseases, and it is suggested that NMO does not represent a specific clinical entity.
