Example text

Relapsing and progressive forms appear to differ in the prominence of active white matter lesions and lower grade cortical and white matter changes, respectively, though the presence of these pathological features are generally shared, pointing to a common disease process. The etiology of this process is still a mystery and while both autoimmune and infectious theories have been proposed, with the autoimmune model most favored based on animal models (EAE) and related CNS inflammatory diseases, such as neuromyelitis optica (NMO), the specific pathogenic factors remain to be elucidated.

It is less common than MS and, ­compared to MS, is even more disproportionately found in women and is overly represented among non-Caucasians. It is characterized by acute relapses that affect predominantly the optic nerves and spinal cord. These relapses may be difficult to distinguish from those of MS; however, they tend to be more severe and leave more residual impairment. NMO is thought to be almost invariably relapsing in nature and unlike MS, does not typically transition into a gradually progressive phenotype.
