NIH Rare Diseases:45 Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (adem) is a neurological condition characterized by a brief but intense attack of inflammation in the brain and spinal cord that damages myelin – the protective covering of nerve fibers. it often follows viral infection, or less often, vaccination for measles, mumps, or rubella. treatment for adem is targeted at suppressing inflammation in the brain using anti-inflammatory drugs. plasmapheresis or intravenous immunoglobulin therapy may also be used. additional treatment is symptomatic and supportive. last updated: 10/31/2011
MalaCards based summary: Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis, also known as acute disseminated encephalitis, is related to postinfectious encephalomyelitis and subcorneal pustular dermatosis. An important gene associated with Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis is MBP (Myelin Basic Protein), and among its related pathways are Tuberculosis and Immune response Antigen presentation by MHC class II. Affiliated tissues include brain, spinal cord and brain, and related mouse phenotype hematopoietic system.
Disease Ontology:10 An encephalomyelitis characterized by inflammation located in brain and located in spinal cord that damages myelin. It usually occurs after viral infection, but also following vaccination, bacterial or parasitic infection.
NINDS:46 Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is characterized by a brief but widespread attack of inflammation in the brain and spinal cord that damages myelin ? the protective covering of nerve fibers.
