Management of pediatric multiple sclerosis

Lauren B Krupp

An increasing number of children and adolescents with multiple sclerosis are being identified and treated with disease-modifying therapies. As more rapid diagnosis is made possible due to the heightened awareness of pediatric multiple sclerosis among the pediatric and neurological communities, and the availability of MRI, the number of pediatric multiple sclerosis patients requiring treatment will grow over time. This review draws on information from adult and pediatric neurology sources and summarizes current available data on the management of pediatric multiple sclerosis.
