Özet

Objective: Multiple Sclerosis is uncommon in children and adolescents. Two to 5 % of all patients with MS have onset before age 16. Although the clinical profile of MS appears similar to adults some features may differ. The disease may lead to significant disability at a younger age. Our aim is to determine the clinical features and, disease course in pediatric onset multiple sclerosis.
