Multiple sclerosis is in fact the main differential diagnosis Acta Med Colomb ; Los anticuerpos antiacuaporina-4 AQ-4 son un biomarcador especifico de esta entidad y, desde su descubrimiento, se ha ampliado el numero de sintomas y datos radiologicos de la enfermedad y se ha definido el concepto de espectro clinico de NMO.

While clinical and radiological features remain highly relevant when it comes to distinguishing seronegative NMO from MS unless a specific laboratory marker for either of these two conditions is foundthe broadening spectrum of syndromes reported associated with AQP4-IgG renders it likely that future diagnostic criteria for seropositive NMO will put less emphasis on clinicoradiological findings but rather on strict laboratory standards this could include the requirement to confirm test results in a second — and, if discrepant, a third —, methodologically independent immunoassay with high specificity and sensitivity as already recommended in current guidelines for other autoantibody mediated diseases of the CNS.
