There was a recent program aired on Canadian TV regarding patients with NMO (neuromyelitis optica or Devic's Disease) being misdiagnosed with MS.
Here is the program:

NMO is a bit different than MS, in that it is specific to demyelination of the optic nerve and spinal cord, not brain tissue.
But it has been related to CCSVI- and was included in the MS category by Zivadinov at BNAC-
The highest prevalence of CCSVI was seen in relapsing primary-progressive MS (89.4 percent), followed by non-relapsing secondary-progressive MS (67.2 percent), NMO (66.6 percent), primary-progressive MS (54.5 percent) and relapsing-remitting MS (49.2 percent). CCSVI prevalence was substantially higher in progressive MS than in non-progressive MS patients. In addition, patients with a progressive MS disease subtype had higher CCSVI prevalence than those with non-progressive MS.
