Neuromyelitis optica (NMO), also known as Devic's disease or Devic's syndrome, is a heterogeneous condition consisting of the simultaneous inflammation and demyelination of the optic nerve (optic neuritis) and the spinal cord (myelitis). It can be monophasic or recurrent.Currently at least two different causes are proposed based on the presence of autoantibodies against AQP4. AQP4+ NMO is currently considered an autoimmune disease (autoimmune astrocytopathy, or autoimmune astrocytic channelopathy) in which a person's own immune system attacks the astrocytes of the optic nerves and spinal cord. The cause of the AQP4- variants is unknown.Although inflammation may also affect the brain, the lesions are different from those observed in the related condition, multiple sclerosis. Spinal cord lesions lead to varying degrees of weakness or paralysis in the legs or arms, loss of sensation (including blindness), and/or bladder and bowel dysfunction.Devic's disease is now studied along a collection of similar diseases called ""Neuromyelitis optica spectrum diseases"". Some cases of this spectrum resemble multiple sclerosis (MS) in several ways, but require a different course of treatment for optimal results.In 2004, NMO-IgG (currently known as Anti-AQP IgG) was first described leading to the distinction between positive and negative cases.In Anti-AQP positive variants, CNS astrocytes, which are the basis for the glymphatic system are the target of the autoimmune attack. NMO-IgG-negative cases are less understood. It seems currently that astrocytes are spared in these IgG negative cases
