    Despite the relatively frequent involvement of the basal ganglia and subthalamic nucleus by multiple sclerosis (MS) plaques, movement disorders (MD), other than tremor secondary to cerebellar or brain-stem lesions, are uncommon clinical manifestations of MS. MD were present in 12 of 733 patients...
