We describe the case of a man with a very-late onset neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder syndrome (NMOSD) who was initially diagnosed as recurrent antiphospholipid syndrome-associated myelitis. This case illustrates that a puzzle of autoreactive antibodies can be detected in patients having neurological syndromes belonging to the NMOSD. Prompt identification and timely immunosuppression prevent relapses and the accumulation of irreversible disability.

Abstract

We describe the case of a man with a very-late onset neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder syndrome (NMOSD) who was initially diagnosed as recurrent antiphospholipid syndrome-associated myelitis. This case illustrates that a puzzle of autoreactive antibodies can be detected in patients having neurological syndromes belonging to the NMOSD. Prompt identification and timely immunosuppression prevent relapses and the accumulation of irreversible disability.
