ABSTRACT
The article presents a prognosis in childhood multiple sclerosis (MS) among the children in Europe. Study reveals that the proportion of patients with MS who develop symptoms before 16 years of age has been estimated at between 0.4 percent and 10.5 percent. Data from the European Database for Multiple Sclerosis (EDMUS) network of adult neurology departments clarified the natural history of MS beginning in childhood. It was found out that children with MS are more likely than adults to present with isolated optic neuritis or brain stem disorder and may demonstrate with an encephalopathic picture.
