Epidemiology and Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis

Ghaniah Hassan-Smith et al. Br J Hosp Med (Lond).

Abstract

Multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory disease of the CNS. The disease is predominantly diagnosed in young adults, with long-term implications for both their personal and professional lives. The economic impact of the condition is particularly significant as the majority of patients are of working age, costing the UK economy approximately £1.4 billion (McCrone et al, 2008).
