About the resource

MS is most common in adults around the age of 20-40, however the number of children being diagnosed with MS is increasing. Because of the rarer nature of MS in children, it is sometimes missed or misdiagnosed. It is important for young people to be diagnosed with MS as early as possible to ensure them the best care for the illness. This article discusses the key factors which differentiate MS in children to MS in adults, with reference to an Icelandic study in 2010.
