BACKGROUND We reported the emergence of a distinct myelitis in patients with atopic diathesis (atopic myelitis [AM]) by a nationwide survey throughout Japan. Similar cases have recently been reported in Caucasians. Pathologic studies of biopsied spinal cord specimens revealed chronic active inflammation with eosinophilic infiltration. OBJECTIVE To clarify the cytokine/chemokine alterations in CSF from patients with AM in comparison to other causes of myelitis. METHODS We measured 27… CONTINUE READING
