Multiple sclerosis

Discussion:

Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive disease in which inflammation and demyelination of white matter on central nervous system result in multiple neurological signs and symptoms. Even though this was her first MRI, the findings fulfill the McDonald criteria for MS on imaging with both dissemination in time and space demonstrated. 

  • space: periventricular, infratentorial, and spinal cord lesions have been demonstrated
  • time: simultaneous presence of a gadolinium-enhancing lesion and a non-enhancing T2-hyperintense lesion
