Her MRI of spine showed T2 hyperintensities suggestive of resolving myelitis. MRI of the brain showed multifocal and confluent areas of demyelination mostly involving the corpus callosum and periventricular region. Lesions, particularly the callosal ones, closely simulated MS. In accordance with the McDonald Criteria and Barkhof's MRI Criteria, this patient did not fit into the diagnosis of MS. Our provisional diagnosis was ADEM.
