MOG-IgG Associated Brainstem Encephalitis in a Chinese Boy: Complication of Mycoplasma pneumoniae Infection

HT Leung, KH Ma, KW Tsui


MOG-IgG associated disorder is uncommon in children. It has a wide range of presentation which may make diagnosis difficult. The triggering factor for the disease is not well reported. We reported a 5-year-old Chinese boy with slurred speech and unsteady gait, presented ten days after Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection, and he was later diagnosed to have MOG-IgG associated brainstem encephalitis.
