Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Accepted modes of therapy in acute disseminated encephalomyelitis include intravenous methylprednisolone, intravenous immunoglobulin or a combination of both. Effectiveness of plasmapheresis has been demonstrated by many case reports. We used plasmapheresis to treat steroid non-responsive acute disseminated encephalomyelitis in two children. There was complete clinical and radiological recovery in both the cases.
