Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), is a monophasic autoimmune demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Although high-dose steroid
management has been considered the mainstay of treatment for ADEM, some patients are unresponsive to steroid therapy. We report the case of a 44-year-old
woman with ADEM who did not respond to steroid therapy, but who showed a noticeable improvement with double filtration plasmapheresis (DFPP). To the best
of our knowledge, this is the first case report of ADEM in literature treated with DFPP. (Turkish Journal of Neurology 2013; 19: 63-5)
