Acute transverse myelitis (ATM), a group of neurologic disorders with an incidence of one to four cases per million people per year, is characterized by focal inflammation of the spinal cord resulting in sensory, motor, and autonomic dysfunction. ATM may be caused by infection, spinal cord infarction, pre-existing inflammatory disease (e.g., SLE) or de novo autoimmunity (idiopathic).
