Patterns of Regional Gray Matter and White Matter Atrophy in "Cortical Multiple Sclerosis" (P6.130)

CONCLUSIONS: GM and WM atrophy of key brain regions known to be related to cognitive functions contribute to differentiate cort-MS from c-MS. Higher susceptibility to neurodegenerative processes in these areas could underlie the clinical presentation of this disease form.Study Supported by:Disclosure: Dr. Parisi has nothing to disclose.
