Multiple Sclerosis is one of the most common neurological disorders leading to disability. Many cases of Multiple Sclerosis are diagnosed late especially in young patients because providers are not considering it early in their assessment and differential diagnosis. This book will provide an additional resource to health care providers working with children and adolescents to facilitate increased awareness and earlier diagnosis and treatment.
