Balò's concentric sclerosis is a rare demyelinating disorder characterised pathologically by concentric rings of alternating demyelinated and relatively myelin preserved white matter.1 Several recent reports have shown that MRI has the potential to depict in vivo the typical appearance of Balò's concentric sclerosis lesions, thus making it possible to recognise this condition antemortem.2-4

The figure presents the MRI obtained from a 31 year old patient with a 4 year history of clinically definite relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis.5 An MR examination performed at clinical onset of the …
