A patient with concurrent multiple sclerosis and moyamoya disease.

Mult Scler Relat Disord 2021 Jul 16;54:103151. Epub 2021 Jul 16.

Division of Neuro-Immunology, Department of Neurology, Lenox Hill Hospital, Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, Great Neck, NY. Electronic address:

Background: Moyamoya disease (MMD) is a rare vasculopathy and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease which causes CNS demyelination. While most literature has focused on misdiagnosis of MMD as an "MS-mimic", we present a patient in which both co-existed.

Methods: Case Report RESULTS: A 57-year-old woman presented with gait dysfunction and paresthesias in both feet. MRI revealed brain and spinal cord lesions consistent with MS. Vessel imaging revealed multivessel stenosis consistent with MMD. Lumbar puncture demonstrated oligoclonal bands, leading to two diagnoses, MS and MMD.

Conclusions: MS can exist concurrently with MMD, potentially due to underlying propensity for autoimmunity.

GQ1b antibody testing in Guillain-Barre syndrome and variants.

Semin Ophthalmol 2006 Oct-Dec;21(4):223-7

Department of Neurology, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL 60153, USA.

Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is characterized by an ascending muscle paralysis with progressive loss of muscle stretch reflexes. Annually, approximately 2.4 cases per 100,000 population of GBS are reported. Variant forms do exist. These include the Fisher syndrome, GBS with ophthalmoplegia, Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis (BBE), and acute ophthalmoparesis without ataxia. In the last 15 years, attention has been directed towards the association of the GQ1b IgG antibody and several GBS variants, particularly the Fisher syndrome and those associated with ophthalmoparesis. We present three cases of GBS variants. All three cases had associated ophthalmoplegia but only one of the three had a positive GQ1b antibody association.
