Post-infectious immune-mediated neurological complications of Sars-Cov-2 have been increasingly recognized since the novel pandemic emerged. We describe the case of a 74 years-old patient who developed a Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein (MOG) antibody-associated unilateral retrobulbar optic neuritis a few weeks after paucisymptomatic COVID-19 disease and, subsequently, after the resolution of the optic neuritis, an acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. So far, no cases of these two neurological manifestations have been reported in the same patient. We herein report a case characterized by both manifestations and review the accumulating literature regarding MOG antibody-associated disease following SarsCov-2 infection.

Abstract

Post-infectious immune-mediated neurological complications of Sars-Cov-2 have been increasingly recognized since the novel pandemic emerged. We describe the case of a 74 years-old patient who developed a Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein (MOG) antibody-associated unilateral retrobulbar optic neuritis a few weeks after paucisymptomatic COVID-19 disease and, subsequently, after the resolution of the optic neuritis, an acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. So far, no cases of these two neurological manifestations have been reported in the same patient. We herein report a case characterized by both manifestations and review the accumulating literature regarding MOG antibody-associated disease following SarsCov-2 infection.
