MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
Multiple sclerosis is an acquired, chronic, immune-mediated, inflammatory disease of the brain and the spinal cord characterized by the presence of multiple discrete areas of myelin loss within the CNS and subsequent axonal degeneration.
It affects more women than men; however, men are more likely to have a malignant clinical course.
A multiple sclerosis attack is usually characterized by any neurological disturbance with minimum 24 hours duration in the absence of fever or infection.
