The article published in 1894 by Dr Eugène Devic was based on a 45-years old female patient presenting with bilateral ON followed by TM and she deceased about a month after the monophasic opticomyelitis2.

Definition (MSH) Severe or complete loss of motor function on one side of the body. This condition is usually caused by BRAIN DISEASES that are localized to the cerebral hemisphere opposite to the side of weakness. Less frequently, BRAIN STEM lesions; cervical SPINAL CORD DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; and other conditions may manifest as hemiplegia.
