Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) also named Devic's disease is an acute demyelinating disorder that primarily affects the spinal cord and optic nerves. NMO can occur rarely in children but pediatric NMO cases need specific consideration owing to possible poor visual and motor outcome. In this case report, a NMO case of a 10-year-old girl with bilateral optic neuritis, cerebral, and spinal cord involvement is presented.
