Abstract

Devic’s Optic neuromyelitis (OND) is a rare central nervous system inflammation resulting in optic neuritis and/or myelitis. The discovery of a highly specific serum autoantibody biomarker for the diagnosis has triggered a great interest to conduct further researches regarding this disease. Its association to Tuberculosi (TB) is very rare.
