Abstract

We describe a patient with multiple sclerosis who had a bout of central demyelination associated with an acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy. The contemporary involvement of central and peripheral nervous system due to a demyelinating disease has been reported anecdotically in humans, and can be induced experimentally in animals. It may be sustained by a common pathogenetic factor.
