Abstract

Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder (NMOSD) is a rare systemic autoimmune disease which is sometimes found in association with other autoimmune disorders including Sjogren's syndrome. Neurological manifestations occur in 20% to 25% of diagnosed cases of Sjögren's syndrome; however, less than 5% of patients with Sjögren's syndrome have neurological manifestations as the initial presenting feature of Sjögren's syndrome. We report the case of an elderly female with longitudinal myelitis as a presenting feature who had positive antibody to aquaporin-4 (NMO-IgG) and Sjögren's syndrome.
