Many neurologic and non-neurologic diseases can mimic Multiple Sclerosis. One of these conditions is silent
perinatal ischemic injury, which can mimic MS on brain MRI. Here, we present 3 cases of patients who presented to
the American University of Beirut Medical Center, Lebanon, and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, NC, USA, with
nonspecific neurologic symptoms and brain MRI findings that mimic MS. After an extensive workup and thorough
history, these patients recall having a prolonged and difficult delivery, which was the most probable cause of their
MRI findings given their distribution and their characteristics on MRI.
