Abstract
Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis(ADEM) is an uncommon acute inflammatory disease of the CNS which follows viral infections or Vaccination. ADEM is thought to be an immune mediated disease. The classic featues of ADEM include an antecedent event, commonly a viral illness, followed after a latent period by acute onset of multifocal or diffuse CNS signs, the potential for extensive or even complete recovery, and pathologic evidence of perivascular inflammation and demyelination. We experienced a 43-year-old patient with ADEM and reviewed literatures.
