Title

Fulminant multifocal relapse in a fingolimod-treated multiple sclerosis patient

Abstract Fingolimod is the first approved oral disease-modifying treatment for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. Fingolimod targets lymphocytes, exerting a modulator effect on cell-surface sphingosine-1-phosphate receptors and thus blocking lymphocytes egression from secondary lymphoid organs. Recent reports describe fingolimod cessation being followed by severe or pseudo-tumoral relapse, but it usually does not happen on continuous long-term treatment.
