Balo's concentric sclerosis is a severe demyelinating disease with poor prognosis. To date, nothing is known about the effects of pregnancy on the course of Balo's disease. We describe here the first successful pregnancy of a patient with Balo's concentric sclerosis. Upon neurological worsenings during pregnancy, our patient was treated with high-dose methylprednisolone and plasma-exchange. Intravenous immunoglobulin and interferon-beta-1a were given postpartum. At the last follow-up visit 2.5 years after the delivery the patient had only minor residual symptoms.
