Abstract

A patient with progressive spastic paraparesis originally ascribed to multiple sclerosis developed recurrent encephalopathy and seizures. A diagnosis of HTLV-I-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis was established prior to death. Autopsy confirmed chronic inflammatory myelopathy and active inflammation in the white matter of the temporal lobes.
