Multiple Sclerosis Brain Lesions Directory

In MS, nerves in the brain are attacked and damaged by the immune system. This causes disability when nerve signals are broken up by the lesions. An MRI can show the damage and help to diagnose and determine the prognosis for multiple sclerosis patients. Multiple sclerosis drugs can slow the development of lesions and reduce the frequency of relapses. Learn more about brain lesions from multiple sclerosis here.
