Abstract

A 4-year-old male presented with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis with seizures and transient amaurosis after initial symptoms of a flulike febrile infection 1 week earlier. Immunoglobulin M type antibody titers against Mycoplasma pneumoniae were significantly increased in serum and cerebrospinal fluid. The patient improved appreciably on immunosuppressive therapy with immunoglobulin. This patient exemplifies a rare case of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis presenting with bilateral transient amaurosis as a complication of M. pneumoniae infection.
