Acute partial transverse myelitis is an acute inflammatory process of the spinal cord and it is a rare clinical syndrome. Acute partial cord lesions cause unilateral or markedly asymmetric sensory and motor dysfunction. In this paper, we report a case of 11 month-old girl who developed acute onset monoparesia following a viral respiratory infection because of no case has been described in the pediatric age group. Magnetic resonance imaging of the spinal cord disclosed expansive and high signal-intensity in the left part of the cervical region. A diagnosis of acute partial transverse myelitis was made and patient was treated with IV immunoglobulin and oral prednisolone. The child had a good neurologic outcome, eventually second months of treatment.
