Abstract

Introduction: Idiopathic inflammatory demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system (IIDCDs) represent a broad spectrum of central nervous system (CNS) disorders thought to be of autoimmune origin. Objective of the study was to diagnose multiple sclerosis by neurological examinations, to do neuroimaging and to see the most common area of involvement.
Materials and Methods: Prospective clinical study in Department of Neurology, S.C.B. Medical College & Hospital, Cuttack from January 2017 to December 2018 (2 years). All cases with diagnosis of multiple sclerosis who fulfilled the recent mcdonald criteria were included in the study. The clinical and epidemiological data were recorded.
Results: Incidence of MS among the IIDDs were 18(14.7%). Male: female ratio was 3.5:1. Periventricular involvement was most common site. FLAIR sequence of MRI was best tool for detection.
Conclusion: Neuroimaging is best modality to diagnose MS. Periventricular lesions are most common.
