      neuropathy as the first episode.

AB  - RATIONALE: Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSDs) represent recurrent
      autoimmune diseases, generally beginning with optic nerve neuritis or acute
      transverse myelitis. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 57-year-old male with long-term alcohol 
      intake was hospitalized because of limb numbness. EMG examination showed the
      peripheral sensory nerve was in demyelination and an axonal injury was found. His
      symptoms could not be improved by vitamin B injection but were later
      significantly attenuated by dexamethasone treatment. Four months later, symptoms 
      of optic neuritis in the left eye appeared, and 6 months later he exhibited
      peripheral neuropathy with acute myelitis. DIAGNOSES: He was diagnosed NMOSD.
      OUTCOMES: Immunotherapy improved his peripheral neuropathy and myelitis symptoms.
      LESSONS: NMOSD patients could represent peripheral neuropathy as the first
