ABSTRACT: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating and inflammatory disease that is thought to be autoimmune in nature. MS typically affects young women ages 20 to 40 years, but late-onset MS (after age 50 years) is more prevalent than previously thought. Between 4% and 9% of patients with MS have symptoms onset after age 50 years.
