An interesting diagram speaking about Anti-MOG associated encephalomyelitis. Some MS cases could be anti-MOG in reality. Get informed.

      Clinical spectrum of myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) immunoglobulin-G (IgG)-associated disease. MOG-IgG is detected in some cases of idiopathic optic neuritis (ON), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), encephalitides (brainstem and cerebral cortical), idiopathic myelitis, atypical multiple sclerosis (MS), aquaporin-4 (AQP4)-IgG-negative neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD) and others.

PPMS or pseudotumoral MS are atypical. Probably others like "Rapidly worsening" and similars too. I suppose that any kind of MS with a surname different from RRMS or SPMS is atypical.
