Abstract

Anti-myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (anti-MOG) syndrome is an immunemediated inflammatory condition of the central nervous system, which usually involves spinal cord and optic nerves. Herein, we studied the case of a 57-yearold female patient who presented with acute/subacute symptoms of sphincter dysfunction, paraparesis, and ocular pain. The patient was diagnosed with anti-MOG syndrome with findings resembling snake-eye appearance (SEA), characterized by nearly symmetrical round high signal intensity lesions located at anterior horns (gray matter) on T2-weighted image.
