The effects of neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder on patient experience and quality of life

Takeaway

  • From a patient-reported perspective, neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) had a strong negative impact on their physical health which greatly reduced quality of life (QoL).

Why this matters

  • Few studies have examined how NMOSD impacts QoL. The study results offer insights into how personal or clinical care may be modified in individuals with NMOSD to improve their QoL.
