Summary This landmark work covers all aspects of MS by the leading authorities in the field. Comprehensive, yet accessible, Multiple Sclerosis provides a full overview of the disease, explains diagnosis, and covers its clinical features and natural history. Theories of pathogenesis are assessed, and both specific and general aspects of management are detailed, including the applicability of recent clinical trails of therapeutic drugs. This unparalleled work represents the culmination of the author's five decades of experience in treating some 6000 MS patients. Twelve chapters introduce the disease, explain diagnosis, cover its clinical features and natural history, give details on theories of pathogenesis, and describe both specific and general aspects of management, including the applicability of recent therapeutic clinical trials. The authors are joined by 9 MS specialists in neuro-ophthalmology, neuropathology and virology.
