Multiple sclerosis (MS) and neuromyelitis optica (NMO) are both demyelinating disorders. Misdiagnosis has been common because many symptoms relating to these 2 disorders overlap. Differential diagnosis has important clinical implications because MS and NMO respond to different treatments. This case-based activity is designed to help clinicians distinguish between these 2 diseases and appropriately manage patients.
