 en Successful renal transplantation after recovery from acute disseminated encephalomyelitis in a child with end-stage renal disease
Bhosale, Guruprasad P.; Shah, Veena R. & Trivedi, Hargovind L.

Abstract

Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), seen mostly in children, is an acute demyelinating disease, affecting mainly the white matter of brain and spinal cord. We report an unusual case of ADEM in an 11-year old boy with end-stage renal disease, who underwent hemopoietic stem cell transplantation prior to renal transplantation. He needed admission to the intensive care unit and required mechanical ventilation. He responded to intravenous injection of steroids and upon recovery, underwent renal transplantation successfully.
