Abstract:
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease of the Central Nervous system, Cognitive impairment occurs in approximately half of patients during the disease course, Clinical case reports of an atypical presentation of MS describe cognitive dysfunction as the primary or predominant presentation, with relative absence of motor or sensory impairments, This study aimed to describe the pattern and severity of cognitive deficits in a group of MS patients with cognitive dysfunction as the primary or predominant symptom ('Cognitive MS'), and investigate how their neuropsychological profile differs from an otherwise matched group of typically presenting MS patients (Typical MS') and healthy controls.
