Neuromyelitis Optica - Devic Disease

The spectrum of transverse myelitis (TM) disorders includes neuromyelitis optica (NMO), multiple sclerosis (MS), longitudinally extensive spinal cord lesions/transverse myelitis (LESCL/LETM), optic spinal MS (OSMS), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), acute complete TM (ACTM), and acute partial TM (APTM).

NMO (also known as Devic disease, Devic syndrome, or Devic neuromyelitis optica) is an acquired demyelinating disease of the central nervous system that may mimic MS.
