Transverse myelitis in a 53-year-old woman. Lesions are typical of transverse myelitis, but symptoms began 2 weeks after a hepatitis B vaccination, suggesting postvaccinal encephalomyelitis. Patchy foci of enhancement at T11-L1 on T1-weighted images, post-gadolinium infusion, sagittal sections. The cord is also mildly expanded at this level. (Contributed by D.
