Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A case of neurobrucellosis misdiagnosed at the onset as multiple sclerosis (MS) is presented. Magnetic resonance imaging showed multiple periventricular areas compatible with demyelinating lesions of possible vascu-litic origin. Myelin basic protein was elevated in the CSF. The immunological CSF study was consistent with a chronic intrathecal inflammatory process. The modification of these parameters during specific treatment is also presented.
