After novel coronavirus pandemic that emerged from Wuhan, China in December 2019, several cases of inflammatory and immune-mediated disorders have been reported, thought to be triggered by SARS-CoV-2 infection. Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) is one of the autoimmune demyelinating disorders, which is thought to be triggered by viral infection. Herein, we describe a case of NMOSD in a pediatric patient with a previous SARS-CoV-2 infection, acting as a possible triggering factor.
