Abstract

Transverse myelitis (TM) is an idiopathic inflammatory disorder of the spinal cord. The authors observed cases of recurrent TM in patients where anti-Ro (SSA) antibodies were present and therefore performed a case-control study to examine the frequency of anti-Ro autoantibodies in patients with recurrent TM and control subjects. Antibodies to 52-kd Ro were demonstrated in 77% of cases (10/13) compared with only 33% of control subjects (4/12).
