Abstract

Objective: The diagnosis of patients with atypical demiyelinating lesions has always been challenging, sometimes leading to a biopsy. Recent literature has radiologically classified atypical inflammatory demyelinating lesions as ring-like, Balo-like, infiltrative, megacystic, and unclassified lesions. In this study, we aimed to assess the demographics and clinical and radiologic findings in patients with atypical lesions.
