Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common cause of progressive neurological disability in the 20-50 year age group. 8 Early diagnosis is difficult because MS is characterised by widespread neurologic lesions that cannot be explained by a single anatomical lesion, and the various symptoms and signs are subject to irregular exacerbations and remissions.
