We present a case report about a young woman initially treated as having multiple sclerosis, who relapsed with serious visual impairment. Devic's disease is a demyelinating disorder that presents as transverse myelitis associated with optic neuritis, typically bilateral. Multiple sclerosis is in fact the main differential diagnosis (Acta Med Colomb 2010; 35: 21-25).
