J Neuro-Ophthalmol ; Finally, we will discuss recent proposals to re-define or substitute the term and explain why there is indeed a need for a more systematic and descriptive nomenclature.

The history of neuromyelitis optica

Optic neuritis and recurrent myelitis in a woman with systemic lupus erythematosus. Devic intended the term to denote a novel syndrome characterized by acute myelitis and optic neuritis: Acute transverse myelitis in multiple sclerosis. Visual field defects of optic neuritis in neuromyelitis optica compared with multiple sclerosis.


We present the different forms of presentation of NMO as well as clinical and laboratory findings that distinguish this entity from multiple sclerosis, a task that frequently is not easy to perform because of the similarity in clinical devicc.

A year-old female diagnosed with NMO after suffering attacks of optic neuritis and recurrent myelitis, and showing positive for AQ-4 antibodies.

While Allbutt might not have been the first to report on a case of NMO see above and reference [ 17 ]it was certainly his report that created the sustained interest of neurologists and ophthalmologists in this rare syndrome.
