This case report is presented with the aim of discussing differential diagnosis of CNS demyelinating diseases in children below 15 years of age. The various diagnoses range from acute disseminated demyelinating disease to multiple sclerosis. In between the two extremes, we have multiphasic demyelinating encephalomyelitis. We had discussed the role of oligoclonal band in cerebrospinal fluid, auto antibodies and magnetic resonance imaging to differentiate these diagnoses.
