MRI in Susac’s Syndrome: A Propos of the Barkhof-Tintore Criteria (P5.163)

Conclusions:Without looking at lesion morphology, patterns of contrast enhancement, lesion location in the corpus callosum, Susac’s lesions by MRI are likely to fulfill 3/4 of the B-T criteria. The current B-T criteria were developed to provide the best combination of sensitivity, specificity and accuracy to diagnose MS and in principle should not be applied in non-MS cases; nevertheless, the incorporation of lesion morphology in the criteria can enhance the ability to differentiate MS from other mimics like SS.Contrast enhancement in SS is more leptomeningeal. We present a case of SS with such leptomeningeal enhancement in the cervical spinal cord. Although conceptually possible, why leptomeningeal enhancement is not seen more often in the spinal cord is unknown.Disclosure: Dr. Kone…
