This book proceeds through diagnosis (initial symptoms, criteria and classification, imaging, lab tests, and differential diagnosis), approved treatments for the various MS types (including emerging therapies where appropriate), symptom management, rehabilitative issues and general health and wellness, considerations for special populations, societal and family issues, CCSVI, related disorders that are often mistaken for MS, and an overview of MS clinical trials. To enhance the clinical utility, “bottom line” information will be pulled out and boxed or bolded for quick reference. Illustrations, tables, graphs, and assessment scales will inform the text throughout. Chapters will open and close with lists of key points where appropriate, and treatment chapters will include specific recommendations where available (AAN guidelines, Cochrane; including levels of evidence to support recommendations) and highlight areas of controversy. Selected chapters will also feature a section on the “Cleveland Clinic approach” to go beyond the literature and provide real-world guidance for practitioners.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory, often progressive, and potentially disabling disease of the central nervous system. Onset of disease is usually between the ages of 15 and 50, with the incidence nearly twice as high in women. While the cause of MS is still unknown, the predominant theory is that it is an autoimmune disease, triggered by an unknown environmental factor that results in both loss of central nervous system myelin and degeneration of axons and neurons. Although there have been a number of publications addressing different aspects of MS treatment in the neurological literature, there is a dearth of material on MS designed for internists and primary care physicians, who are often the first to see patients presenting with symptoms of MS. Therefore, this concise, clinically focused volume will serve as a valuable resource tailored to the specific needs of internists and primary care physicians. Part of the Oxford Neurology Library, this highly practical pocketbook covers current approaches and new developments in the diagnosis, treatment and management of MS, including both early and advanced stages of the disease. The book offers in-depth coverage of special populations, as well as the more unusual manifestations of MS, which are less familiar to the internal medicine audience. It will also address the role of imaging studies in the diagnosis, differential diagnosis and monitoring of the progression of MS. In addition to providing up-to-date information on pharmacological therapies for MS, the book also describes an array of non-pharmacological treatment options.
