Distinct features of myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein autoantibody-positive myelitis

Takeaway

  • Patients with myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein autoantibody (MOG-IgG) myelitis may present with an acute flaccid phenotype and specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features.

Why this matters

  • Understanding the clinical, radiologic and prognostic features of poorly-characterized MOG-IgG myelitis is important for differential diagnosis from other forms of myelitis, and treatment.
