Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein Antibody Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder

Takeaway

  • Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) antibody neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) involves mainly optic nerves but shows good long-term neurological recovery and sensitivity to steroid use and withdrawal.

Why this matters

  • MOG antibody disease needs further characterization to aid in distinguishing it from multiple sclerosis (MS) and aquaporin-4 (AQP4) seronegative NMOSD.
