Estimated time to complete: 0.50 hours

Activity Description

Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is an autoimmune disease often characterized by sporadic and repeated inflammatory flare ups that can impact the optic nerve and/or spinal cord. With each repeated attack, additional permanent neurological damage will accrue. This CME activity highlights the important role both ophthalmologists and neurologists play in diagnosing and treating NMOSD most efficiently.
