Background: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) criteria play an important role in making an earlier diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) in patients presenting with clinically isolated syndrome. Objective: The objective of this paper is to determine whether MRI criteria may be used to distinguish MS from primary and secondary central nervous system (CNS) vasculitis, lupus, and Sjogren’s syndrome. Methods: MRI criteria were applied retrospectively to images for patients with clinically definite MS… Expand
Susceptibility-weighted imaging in the differential diagnosis of autoimmune central nervous system vasculitis and multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
SWI may be a useful adjunct in distinguishing autoimmune CNS vasculitis from MS and the identification of multiple microbleeds and cortical superficial siderosis can point to a diagnosis of autoimmune CNS Vasculitis. Expand
Prediction of a multiple sclerosis diagnosis in patients with clinically isolated syndrome using the 2016 MAGNIMS and 2010 McDonald criteria: a retrospective study
TLDR
The performance of the 2010 McDonald and 2016 MAGNIMS criteria for multiple sclerosis diagnosis in a large multicentre cohort of patients with CIS is compared to provide evidence to guide revisions of multiple sclerosis diagnostic criteria. Expand
Central vein sign differentiates Multiple Sclerosis from central nervous system inflammatory vasculopathies
TLDR
In a multicenter study, the frequency of perivenular lesions in MS versus systemic autoimmune diseases with CNS involvement and primary angiitis of the CNS (PACNS) is assessed. Expand
Distinct regional brain atrophy pattern in multiple sclerosis and neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus patients
TLDR
There is a different pattern of atrophy in MS and SLE, and the key structural volumes that are differentially affected include fourth ventricle and posterior section of corpus callosum, followed by third ventricles to thalamus ratio. Expand
MRI CRITERIA FOR THE DIAGNOSIS OF MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS: MAGNIMS CONSENSUS GUIDELINES
TLDR
State-of-the-art MRI findings in patients presenting with a clinically isolated syndrome were discussed in a MAGNIMS workshop, the goal of which was to provide an evidence-based and expert-opinion consensus on diagnostic MRI criteria modifications. Expand
Demyelinating syndrome in SLE encompasses different subtypes: Do we need new classification criteria? Pooled results from systematic literature review and monocentric cohort analysis.
TLDR
DS in SLE is rare (1%) and encompasses different subtypes including CIS and timely diagnosis and early treatment are recommended to minimize complications. Expand
The current role of MRI in differentiating multiple sclerosis from its imaging mimics
TLDR
MAGNIMS updates the imaging features that differentiate the most common mimics of MS, particularly age-related cerebrovascular disease and neuromyelitis optica, from MS itself and provides a pragmatic summary of the clinically useful MRI features that distinguish MS from its mimics. Expand
Relationship Between Clinical and Immunological Features with Magnetic Resonance Imaging Abnormalities in Female Patients with Neuropsychiatric Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
TLDR
MRI abnormalities in NPSLE, especially CA, cortex involvement, and RD might be markers of high systemic lupus erythematosus activity and might be helpful in understanding the pathophysiology of N PSLE. Expand
[A current view on the MRI diagnosis of multiple sclerosis: an update of 2016 revised MRI criteria].
TLDR
The article presents the current data on using MRI of the brain and spinal cord for diagnosis in suspected multiple sclerosis and special attention is paid to the MRI criteria of McDonald and MAGNIMS for relapsing-remitting MS. Expand
CNS Vasculitis-An Overview of This Multiple Sclerosis Mimic: Clinical and MRI Implications.
TLDR
There is a paucity of discussion of vasculitis in the radiology literature, and many MS neurologists believe that vasculopathy is underdiagnosed, so the authors hope that the readers will find this paper increases their knowledge about CNS Vasculitis and improves their ability to differentiate MS from vasculation.

MRI criteria for multiple sclerosis in patients presenting with clinically isolated syndromes: a multicentre retrospective study
TLDR
The new criteria are simpler than the McDonald criteria without compromising specificity and accuracy and the presence of both DIS and DIT from two MRI scans has a higher specificity and risk for CDMS than either DIS or DIT alone. 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
Validation of diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging criteria for multiple sclerosis and response to interferon β1a
TLDR
The Early Treatment of MS study was not powered to detect statistically significant treatment by variable interaction, and this remains an important issue for further study. Expand
Primary Angiitis of the Central Nervous System: REPORT OF 8 NEW CASES, REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE, AND PROPOSAL FOR DIAGNOSTIC CRITERIA
TLDR
Diagnostic criteria for PACNS are proposed which would include the presence of an unexplained neurologic deficit after thorough clinical and laboratory evaluation and no evidence of a systemic vasculitide or any other condition to which the angiographic or pathologic features could be secondary. 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: Guidelines for research protocols
TLDR
Today there is a need for more exact criteria than existed earlier in order to conduct therapeutic trials in multicenter programs, to compare epidemiological surveys, to evaluate new diagnostic procedures, and to estimate the activity of the disease process in MS. Expand
Classification and histopathologic spectrum of central nervous system vasculitis.
  • J. Lie
  • Medicine
  • Neurologic clinics
  • 1997
TLDR
Because of the focal and segmental distribution of CNS vasculitis, a positive biopsy is diagnostic for the disease demonstrated, but a single isolated negative biopsy does not necessarily exclude primary or secondary CNS Vasculitis. Expand
Diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis
TLDR
The history of clinical diagnostic criteria demonstrates the evolution from rather tentative classifications of restricted value to the more elaborate 1983 scheme which incorporates some laboratory procedures under the rubric paraclinical tests as well as a new category based on the presence of specific abnormalities of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Expand
Diagnostic criteria for multiple sclerosis: 2005 revisions to the “McDonald Criteria”
TLDR
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 disease. Expand
Evaluation and treatment of central nervous system vasculitis
TLDR
Clinicians involved in the evaluation of patients with presumed CNS vasculitis need to be aware of the clinical spectrum of vascular inflammatory disease within the CNS as well as the strengths and limitations of currently available diagnostic modalities. Expand
