    A definition of the term "Schilder's disease" is presented. It refers to a rare demyelinating disease of the central nervous system that produces brain lesions resembling tumors or abscesses that may respond to the treatment with immunosuppressing drugs. Its synonym is myelinoclastic diffuse...

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is characterized by multiple demyelinated inflammatory lesions disseminated in the central nervous system (CNS). Additional features of MS pathology include axonal loss and gliosis. Remyelination may take place predominantly in the early stages of lesion formation....

    Inflammatory demyelinating lesions of the central nervous system are a common feature of both neuromyelitis optica and multiple sclerosis. Despite this similarity, it is evident clinically that the accumulation of disability in patients with neuromyelitis optica is relapse related and that a...

    The article provides an overview of neuromyelitis optica or Devic's disease, an immune mediated demyelinating condition of the central nervous system affecting the spinal cord and optic nerves. According to the article, neuromyelitis optica is often misdiagnosed as multiple sclerosis (MS) and...

    The article discusses the use of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to differentiate the spinal cord lesions caused by neuromyelitis optica (NMO) with multiple sclerosis (MS). It states that DTI shows that radial diffusivity is much greater with NMO than with MS. It says that the results shows much...

    Neuromyelitis optica or Devic's disease is an uncommon clinical syndrome which is described as co-existence of unilateral or bilateral optic neuritis and transverse myelitis. The pathogenesis is explained by autoimmune demyelinization triggered by a viral infection. Although it is well described...
