Young adults and MS
Multiple sclerosis is the commonest neurological disease affecting young adults. In patients under 30, treatment needs to be adjusted accordingly.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common neurological disorder among young adults and often results in a handicap. It is an auto-immune disease in which the body attacks its own tissues. The immune attack in MS targets the central nervous system. The lesions are well-localised and are called “plaques”.
