Abstract

Rubella is now an uncommon disease, and its neurological complications are rarely encountered. One complication, acute transverse myelitis, has been described in a few case reports and usually has an unfavourable outcome. The case is presented of an elite swimmer who developed transverse myelitis after rubella, which was treated with methylprednisolone. The recovery was so rapid and complete that two months after the acute event she broke a national swimming record.
