Susac Syndrome (SS) and multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) are rare autoimmune neurological conditions which can affect women of childbearing years. The effect of pregnancy on these disorders is poorly characterised. We report a case of SS first manifesting in pregnancy with challenges in diagnosis and management and a poor clinical outcome, and a case of MMN manifesting in pregnancy then relapsing in a subsequent pregnancy. A summary of other cases in the literature and the postulated underlying immune mechanisms is presented.
