Altered volume and microstructure in patients with neuromyelitis optical spectrum disorder

Takeaway

  • Altered volume and microstructure in the hippocampus are seen in patients with neuromyelitis optical spectrum disorder (NMOSD) and are correlated with measures of anxiety and depression.

Why this matters

    This is the first study to assess volume and microstructural integrity of the hippocampus in patient with neuromyelitis optical spectrum disorder (NMOSD), and correlate these changes with measures of disability, anxiety and depression.
