INTRODUCTION:

Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD) comprise a group of frequently disabling disorders that more commonly results from attacks of specific autoantibodies to sites with high expression of aquaporin-4 in the central nervous system. Although the disease has been described in all age groups, disease onset most frequently occurs around 40 years. Onset in the elderly has seldom been reported.
