  • IgG directed against the α-isoform of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP-IgG) predicts a distinct corticosteroid-responsive meningoencephalomyelitis termed autoimmune GFAP astrocytopathy, when detected on cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).1 Optic disc oedema and tremor are common accompaniments. The MRI hallmark is a striking linear perivascular enhancement radially oriented around the ventricles (radial enhancement), while the myelitis component is generally associated with a longitudinally… CONTINUE READING
