Una malattia neurologica di difficile inquadramento
A neurological disease difficult to classify
<p>We describe a case of a 32 year old woman visiting to the NeurologyUnit with progressive bi-frontal headache and reduced visual acuity followed by disequilibrium and dysarthria.<br />Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis documented pleyocitosis with slight CSF-blood-barrier damage.<br />Routine laboratory tests that were all negative except for the presence of serum anti-myelin oligodendrocyteglycoprotein (MOG) antibody.<br />Thanks to the laboratory test results, neurologists could classified the patient as a case of encephalomyelitis anti-MOG antibody related and have treated her with methylprednisolone followed by Rituximab with clinical improvementand reduction of brain lesion.<br />Anti-MOG antibody associated to encephalomyelitis is currently considerated as a distinct nosologic entityimmunopathogenetically identifiable among the neuromyelitis spectrum disorders.<br />The case illustrated here underlines the central role of the clinical laboratory for the correct diagnosis of demyelinatingnervous system diseases.</p>
