Case Discussion

Multiple sclerosis is a relatively common acquired chronic relapsing demyelinating disease involving the central nervous system. It is by definition disseminated not only in space (i.e multiple lesions), but also in time (i.e lesions are of different age).

Our report described the increase in the number of lesions, compared with the previous scan, demonstrating the evolution of the disease.
