Abstract

We report a 26 year-old female who initially presented with hypersomnia and visual disturbance with preceding upper respiratory infection. She was diagnosed as neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) with the presence of anti-AQP4 antibody. Eight months later, she experienced nausea and vomiting refractory to conventional therapies, which was proved correlated with a lesion of area postrema on brain magnetic resonance imaging. These might be significant clinical manifestations in NMOSD and may widen the clinical spectrum of the disease.
