Abstract

Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is a rare, disabling, recurring inflammatory demyelinating disease affecting the spinal cord and optic nerves with predominance in women.

We present the case of a female patient with chronic C hepatitis, who, despite treatment, developed severe symptoms of NMO during pregnancy and postpartum.
