Where to go for Pediatric MS Treatment

As recently as 20 years ago, it was believed that children did not get MS.  We didn’t know then what is known now about pediatric-onset multiple sclerosis.  Even children under the age of 2 have been diagnosed with MS!

But MS is not the only central nervous system demyelinating disease which is seen in children.  In fact, other diagnoses usually come first, just as adults with MS are often given a diagnosis of clinically isolated syndrome before definite MS.

It can be frightening if your child has unexplained symptoms and the local doctors are unsure how to diagnose or treat your child for his/her condition.  If that disease is suspected of being a demyelinating disease such as multiple sclerosis, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, or other related diseases, then there is good news.
