      <Abstract>Introduction: Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an inflammatory, demyelinating central nervous system disorder characterized by concurrence of optic neuritis associated with a lesion in the spinal cord extending over three or more vertebral segments.7 Clinical Case: We describe a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) who presented with acute myelopathy and optic neuritis and subsequently was diagnosed with NMO. Conclusions: This case highlights the importance of including NMO in the differential diagnosis when an AIDS patient presents with optic neuritis or myelitis. Timely diagnosis of NMO is essential for adequate treatment and recovery.</Abstract>
