A 15-year-old Libyan girl developed typical findings of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, unveiling characteristic symptoms of Behcet’s disease by months. This disease course of neuro-Behcet’s disease is quite exceptional in children, and an isolated, high-density MRI lesion of the corpus callosum, like in the present case, has not been described in neuro-Behcet’s disease before.
