Neuromyelitis Optica: A Case Report
Abstract: Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder is an autoimmune disease that causes severe demyelination, especially in the optic nerve and spinal cord with typical clinical manifestations of acute optic neuritis and transverse myelitis. The symptoms can occur simultaneously or separated by a variable period. NMOSD is associated with serum aquaporin antibodies 4 immunoglobulin G (AQP4 - Ig G). Here we report a rare case of neuromyelitisoptica in 27 years old female patient presented with headache and bilateral visual loss. The case emphasizes the existence of neuromyelitisoptica spectrum disorder in clinical settings of the developing world.
