SARS-COV-2 frequently cause neurological disorders and is sometimes associated with onset of autoimmune diseases affecting the nervous system. Over recent years, a rare but distinct diagnosis designated myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein-associated disorder (MOGAD) has been recognized in patients with attacks of optic neuritis, myelitis, or encephalomyelitis and increased levels of anti-MOG antibodies. The cause of MOGAD is unknown. However, there have been reports of single cases of MOGAD in patients with Covid-19 infection. We report a series of SARS-CoV-2 positive patients that developed MOGAD, but a homology search did not support a cross-reactive immune response to SARS-CoV-2 spike-protein and MOG.
