Tumefactive demyelination (TD) is a solitary cerebral demyelinating lesion clinically and radiologically mimicking brain tumors. It can occur in isolation or may be rarely associated with other demyelinating diseases. The underlying pathogenic mechanisms are unknown. We present the first report of TD following in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in a 36-year-old healthy woman who developed subacute right hemiparesis shortly after a scheduled IVF cycle.
