Association of Neuromyelitis Optica With Severe and Intractable Pain. Qian P, Lancia S, Alvarez E, Klawiter EC, Cross AH, Naismith RT. Abstract OBJECTIVE To contrast differences in pain and treatment outcomes between neuromyelitis optica (NMO) and multiple sclerosis (MS)

Clinical features of neuromyelitis optica in a large Japanese cohort: comparison between phenotypes. J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry

BACKGROUND: Although overt involvement of the central nervous system (CNS) in myasthenia gravis (MG) is considered rare, hyperreflexia is a common and yet unexplained finding. Aquaporin 4 (AQP4), the target autoantigen in neuromyelitis optica, is expressed both in the CNS and in the neuromuscular junction

Background: Myasthenia gravis (MG) and neuromyelitis optica (NMO, also known as Devic disease) are rare autoimmune disorders, with upper-limit prevalence estimates in the general population of 15 per 100 000 and 5 per 100 000, respectively. To our knowledge, an association between these diseases has not been previously reported.

Background: Association of the haplotype including DRB1*1501 with multiple sclerosis (MS) is well established. Recent studies have suggested lack of association of this haplotype with neuromyelitis optica (NMO) (Z?phir et al
