Answer

A combination of lesions and relapses can suggest multiple sclerosis. Myelopathy rarely occurs in the course of primary Sjögren syndrome. It appears as Brown-Séquard syndrome, acute transverse myelitis, or progressive myelopathy. Clinically, cases with nervous system involvement present with paraparesis or paraplegia resulting from lesions at the thoracic or cervicothoracic levels.
