BACKGROUND Evidence is accumulating that indicates that a selected assessment of gray matter (GM) damage is able to provide strong paraclinical correlates of multiple sclerosis (MS) severity. OBJECTIVE To investigate the pattern of regional GM atrophy in patients with benign MS (BMS) vs those with secondary progressive MS (SPMS) to better elucidate the factors associated with a favorable status in patients with MS. DESIGN Cross-sectional survey from January 2006 to August 2007. SETTING… CONTINUE READING
