Abstract
Plasmapheresis is an emerging treatment for intravenous steroid-resistant neuromyelitis optica (NMO). We present the case of a 16-year-old girl who suffered from intravenous steroid-resistant NMO and whose neurological status improved markedly after treatment with plasmapheresis. This is the first report on the effectiveness of plasmapheresis in NMO in Korea. Key Words: Neuromyelitis optica, Plasmapheresis
