Elizabeth Shuster, M.D., a neurologist at Mayo Clinic in Florida, describes multiple sclerosis. MS is a disease of the central nervous system that includes the brain, spinal cord and nerves. MS and related diseases are called demyelinating diseases because they result from damage to myelin (the insulating covering of nerves). There are several types of multiple sclerosis. This neurologic disorder affects more women than men and gender differences are reviewed. Each year, Mayo Clinic provides care for nearly 2,500 patients with MS, a testament to the clinic's depth and breadth of expertise. Information about new options for treatment and research underway for additional therapies for multiple sclerosis is also shared. For more information, see http://www.mayoclinic.org/multiple-sc...
