Three cases of subacutely progressive spinal paraparesis had myelographic evidence of spinal cord swelling suggesting the diagnosis of intramedullary tumour. The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) was made in each case with the aid of CSF protein electrophoresis, evoked responses and CT scan. Because acute MS may produce cord swelling simulating tumor or syrinx, these additional investigations may be necessary to make a correct diagnosis.
