Abstract

The woman, who was wheel chair bound, had a history of traumatic cervical spinal cord injury. She presented with fever and confusion. Subsequently, she was hospitalised. A month prior to the presentation, she was administered a seasonal influenza virus vaccine [route and dosage not stated]. Her neurological examination showed Babinski sign with quadriplegia and hyper-reflexia of limb tendons. CSF analysis resulted in pleocytosis with glucose content of 88 g/dL and protein content of 108 g/dL. Thereafter, she underwent MRI scan of the brain, which showed the images of ADEM.
