Abstract

The clinical and radiographic spectrum of Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder has broadened following the description of the aquaporin-4 antibody. The initial triggering event and reason for disease quiescence between relapses is unclear. We present a case of myeloradiculitis associated with aquaporin-4 antibody and concomitant herpes simplex virus 2 infection.
