Schilder's disease (SD) is a rare variant of multiple sclerosis with a predilection to children. It is characterized by focal neurological abnormalities, which are atypical for MS, in conjunction with tumor-like white matter lesions on MRI. We report the case of an 11-year-old girl that demonstrates two important features of the disease: a) the clinical presentation and subsequent course in conjunction with the serial neuroradiological findings stress the feasibility of a non-invasive diagnosis of SD; and b) we report a significant clinical response to treatment with intravenous human Immunoglobulins.
