[Encephalopathy and neuromyelitis optica: the importance of recognising atypical symptoms].

CONCLUSIONS. Since the discovery of AQ-4 antibodies, there has been an increase in the number of clinical and radiological manifestations of NMO beyond involvement of the optic nerve and the spinal cord, including manifestations in the brain. It is important to recognise them in order to make an early diagnosis, to avoid unnecessary complementary tests and to establish the most suitable treatment.
