La Habana, Cuba. Palabras clave: encefalomielitis; citomegalovirus; enfermedades desmielinizantes. ABSTRACT Introduction: acute disseminated encephalomyelitis is a disorder with evidence indicating inflammatory- demyelinizing origin of the central nervous system, and its cause is autoimmune related to infections or vaccines; it is predominant in children, adolescents and young adults in one-phase process, although it is occasionally recurrent. Case presentation: female adolescent with no immunological disorder, who at 13 years of age began showing clinical manifestations of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis. These manifestations evolved into recurrent multistage and the brain tissue biopsy revealed slight inflammatory filtrate to lymphocytes, brain edema and finally the polymerase chain reaction was positive to cytomegalovirus.
