Multiple Sclerosis for the Practicing Neurologist by Adnan MB Al-Araji & Joel Oger MD

The Multiple Sclerosis International Foundation estimates that over 2.5 million people worldwide have multiple sclerosis. Throughout developed countries, increased attention has been paid to this disorder, due in large part to advanced imaging technology and the development of new therapeutic pharmaceutical agents.

Multiple Sclerosis for the Practicing Neurologist, edited by Joel Oger, MD, and Adnan Al-Araji, MB, offers a practical review of this disabling condition, especially focused on the evaluation and treatment of patients in low-resource environments, which lack these new technologies. It is the fifth volume in a series of clinically oriented titles developed under the auspices of the World Federation of Neurology.

This volume gives concise, useful clinical information for practicing neurologists, providing a straightforward overview of each topic and including many representative case studies. Drs. Oger and Al-Araji effectively demonstrate that a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis is possible and acceptable without expensive tests and equipment, such as MRIs. In parallel, treatment options that avoid costly disease-modifying drugs have been stressed throughout. Topics covered include:

  • Diagnosis and diagnostic tests
  • Symptom management and immunotherapy
  • Multiple sclerosis rating scales
  • Clinical trials in multiple sclerosis

    Multiple Sclerosis for the Practicing Neurologist is the first volume to address the issues faced by neurologists with limited resources who must deliver care to MS patients.
