Revisions made to international paediatric MS criteria

The International Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis Study Group (IPMSSG), coordinated by MSIF and other supporting MS societies, has published a paper in Multiple Sclerosis Journal with revised definitions for paediatric MS and immune-mediated central nervous system demyelinating disorders.

The purpose of this review was to revise the 2007 definitions in order to incorporate recent research advances in paediatric MS. Input was sought from the 150 members of the Study Group and the paper reflects their consensus view. The advances will enable clinicians to diagnose and differentiate paediatric MS with greater certainty.
