Dr. M. Birla Pavalam; Dr. S. Senthur Rajapandiyan MD


Abstract: Demyelinating diseases form a class of disorders characterized by loss or attenuation of the myelin sheath which include, Autoimmune, Infectious, Toxic / Metabolic, Vasular and Hereditary Disorder. Our Study aims to study the spectrum of patients with demyelinating illness and to study the antecedent events, clinical profile and etiological factors among them and to analyse the short term outcome. The spectrum of patients with demyelinating illness admitted comprised of 88 % GBS, followed by 9.3 % ADEM and 2.7 % multiple sclerosis. Of the 23 cases that needed ventilator assistance, 8 weaned in less than 4 days, 7 between four and eight days, 6 between eight and twelve days and 2 above twelve days.
