Vascular malformations masquerading as demyelinating disease. May be the explanation?

This report shows that blood flow problems can produce demyelinating lesions similar to those seen in MS. Anyway, the authors state that this kind of demyelination should be not considered MS, but just a separated demyelinating disease.

Highlights

•AVMs/dAVFs can mimic demyelinating disease like NMO, ADEM, or transverse myelitis.
•Symptoms of vascular malformation can be worsened if treated with steroids.
•In atypical demyelinating disease, our cases back angiography to preclude AVMs/dAVFs.
