New diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis integrating magnetic resonance image assessment with clinical and other paraclinical methods were introduced in 2001. The “McDonald Criteria” have been extensively assessed and used since 2001. New evidence and consensus now strengthen the role of these criteria in the multiple sclerosis diagnostic workup to demonstrate dissemination of lesions in time, to clarify the use of spinal cord lesions, and to simplify diagnosis of primary progressive… Expand

Diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis: 2010 Revisions to the McDonald criteria
TLDR
These revisions simplify the McDonald Criteria, preserve their diagnostic sensitivity and specificity, address their applicability across populations, and may allow earlier diagnosis and more uniform and widespread use. Expand
[Revision of McDonald's new diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis].
TLDR
Recent experiences with the McDonald criteria are presented and substantial changes affect MRI criteria for the dissemination of lesions over time, the role of spinal cord lesions in the MRI and diagnosis of primary progressive MS are presented. Expand
Diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis: 2017 McDonald Diagnostic Criteria
TLDR
An overview of the way to diagnose MS and the 2017 McDonald criteria is provided and all revisions relied entirely on the available evidences, and not expert opinion are provided. Expand
A proposed modification to the McDonald 2010 criteria for the diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis
TLDR
An alternative criterion requiring two of: i) MRI of the brain with one or more lesions in two of three regions typical for demyelination; ii) the presence of one T2-weighted spinal cord plaque; iii) CSFOBs; would increase the diagnostic sensitivity for PPMS. Expand
Diagnosis of multiple sclerosis: 2017 revisions of the McDonald criteria
TLDR
The 2017 McDonald criteria continue to apply primarily to patients experiencing a typical clinically isolated syndrome, define what is needed to fulfil dissemination in time and space of lesions in the CNS, and stress the need for no better explanation for the presentation. Expand
Evolution of diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis depends largely on the results of the MRI examination, which is particularly important for starting disease-modifying treatments. Expand
Clinical Application of 2017 McDonald Diagnostic Criteria for Multiple Sclerosis
TLDR
The new 2017 Multiple Sclerosis criteria may have an important impact in clinical practice with an earlier treatment to avoid the risk of disease dissemination and requires a careful assessment to avoid misdiagnosis and mistreatments. Expand
Multiple sclerosis: The evolving diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis
Recent revisions to the diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis have simplified MRI definitions for dissemination of CNS lesions in space and time, and may enable an earlier and easier diagnosisExpand
The diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and the clinical subtypes
  • B. Hurwitz
  • Medicine
  • Annals of Indian Academy of Neurology
  • 2009
TLDR
The McDonald diagnostic criteria for MS (2005) are the currently recognized MS diagnostic criteria and the clinical subtypes of MS and their diagnosis are discussed in this article. Expand
Multiple sclerosis
TLDR
During more than 5 decades, a variety of criteria to enable the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis have been proposed and often widely utilized in clinical practice, with MRI coming to occupy a central role in the diagnostic process. Expand

Multiple sclerosis diagnostic criteria: three years later
TLDR
The purpose of the current review is to present and evaluate the key studies that have been performed using the McDonald criteria since 2001 and to set the stage for an upcoming re-evaluation of the new criteria based on data-driven information gathered since their development. Expand
Recommended diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis: Guidelines from the international panel on the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis
TLDR
The revised criteria facilitate the diagnosis of MS in patients with a variety of presentations, including “monosymptomatic” disease suggestive of MS, disease with a typical relapsing‐remitting course, and disease with insidious progression, without clear attacks and remissions. Expand
New diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis
TLDR
One year after symptom onset, more than three times as many patients with CIS were diagnosed with MS using new diagnostic criteria incorporating MRI results compared to older criteria, however, the proposed MRI criteria require further prospective studies to optimize sensitivity and specificity. Expand
New T2 lesions enable an earlier diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in clinically isolated syndromes
TLDR
In clinically isolated syndromes, the new McDonald criteria for multiple sclerosis diagnosis require new gadolinium‐enhancing lesions for dissemination in time at a 3‐month follow‐up magnetic resonance imaging scan, which were specific but less sensitive for clinically definite multiple sclerosis at 3 years. Expand
Discrepancies in the interpretation of clinical symptoms and signs in the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis. A proposal for standardization
TLDR
There were marked inconsistencies in the decisions of participating neurologists with respect to the classification of clinical symptoms as being caused by one or more lesions provoking discussions in about one in every five patients, and a systematic approach is recommended that attempts to reduce the variability in interpreting clinical findings. Expand
MRI criteria for multiple sclerosis
TLDR
The authors found that many pediatric MS patients did not meet the MRI criteria established for adult-onset MS, particularly the McDonald MRI criteria for dissemination in space, and suggest thatMRI criteria for adult MS be applied cautiously to pediatric MS Patients. Expand
Diagnostic criteria for primary progressive multiple sclerosis: A position paper
TLDR
New diagnostic criteria developed by a group of investigators on the basis of a review of their considerable experience with primary progressive multiple sclerosis require prospective validation in a cohort of newly diagnosed patients and by postmortem examination. Expand
Application of the new McDonald criteria to patients with clinically isolated syndromes suggestive of multiple sclerosis
TLDR
Using the new McDonald criteria more than doubled the rate of diagnosis of MS within a year of presentation with a clinically isolated syndrome and the high specificity, positive predictive value, and accuracy of the new criteria for clinically definite MS support their clinical relevance. Expand
Isolated demyelinating syndromes: comparison of different MR imaging criteria to predict conversion to clinically definite multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
The four dichotomized MR imaging parameters proposed by Barkhof et al are more specific and accurate than the criteria proposed by Paty et al or Fazekas et al for predicting conversion to clinically definite multiple sclerosis. Expand
Comparison of MRI criteria at first presentation to predict conversion to clinically definite multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
It is concluded that a four-parameter dichotomized MRI model including gadolinium-enhancement, juxtacortical, infratentorial and periventricular lesions best predicts conversion to clinically definite multiple sclerosis. Expand
