[Abstract] Myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein antibody disease (MOGAD) is a new subtype of idiopathic inflammatory demyelinating disease (IIDDs) of the central nervous system in children, involving the brain, optic nerve and spinal cord. MOGAD requires individualized clinical management and specific treatment regimens, but its clinical manifestations overlap with other subtypes of IIDDs, making clinical identification difficult. MRI has the advantages of high soft tissue resolution and multi-parameter and multi-sequence imaging, which can better display the differences of neuroimaging characteristics between MOGAD and other subtypes of IIDDs, and plays an important role in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of MOGAD. In recent years, studies on MOGAD have mainly focused on the summary and induction of imaging features of brain, optic nerve and spinal cord lesions based on MRI conventional sequences, while few studies on new sequences and new technologies have been performed on MOGAD in children. Therefore, this paper reviews the clinical and MRI research progress of MOGAD in children, in order to improve the level of understanding of the disease.
