Abstract:   (299 Views)
Background: Von-Willebrand Disease (VWD) is the most common inherited bleeding disorder with an autosomal inheritance pattern. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disease, causing neurodegeneration and demyelination of the central nervous system through autoimmune mechanisms, and is a major cause of non-traumatic disabilities in youths. Some studies have shown the higher plasma activity of Von-Willebrand Factor in the active phase of MS. However, we could not find any study reporting co-occurrence of VWD and MS.
Case Presentation and Intervention: In this case report, we present a woman with VWD who had optic neuritis 8 years ago and a new onset right-side hemiparesis. She was finally diagnosed as a new case of MS.
Conclusion: There is a case of both VWD and MS; however, further investigation is needed regarding the association of VWD and MS.
