  • CONCLUSION: these findings suggest that cytokines such as tumour necrosis factor-alpha, soluble tumour necrosis factor receptor 1, interleukin-6, and interleukin-10 are related to the pathogenesis of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis in the acute stage [17].
  • If very young children are infected, however, practically complete resistance develops, and neither acute disseminated encephalomyelitis nor MS follows [18].
  • We studied IL-6 concentrations in children with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM; n = 14), and compared the values with those obtained from control patients with other inflammatory (OIND; n = 13) and non-inflammatory (NIND; n = 10) neurological disorders [19].
  • OBJECTIVES: To describe the clinical, CSF, and radiologic findings and long-term follow-up in a cohort of patients with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), and to determine possible prognostic factors for progression to MS [20].
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: White matter lesions on MR images obtained from patients with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) have been reported to appear shortly after symptom onset, and their resolution has been claimed to parallel recovery [21].
