The picture of demyelinating diseases gets more complicated

This is the current picture as far as the current knowledge suggest. The picture is more complex than previously thought, even if anti-neurofascin diseases are not represented:

There is a big overlapping of anti-AQP4 with NMOSD (neuromyelitis-like) and also of anti-MOG with ADEM and Marburg. The rest of the diseases/varieties can still be considered idiopatic.

PS: Taken from here:
Neuromyelitis optica spectrum and myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody‐related disseminated encephalomyelitis

PS2: This is the picture including neurofascins
