Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) occurs in children commonly following infections and vaccination. Central demyelinating disorder such as ADEM following snake bite is rarely reported. We present a case of an 11-year-old boy who developed altered sensorium and quadriparesis suggestive of ADEM following a cobra bite. The role of early diagnosis with a high index of clinical suspicion and optimum neuroimaging modality in recovery is highlighted.
