Multiple sclerosis is a common disease of the CNS. The first of these articles (Hassan-Smith and Douglas, 2011) examined its epidemiology and diagnosis. This article explores the management and prognosis of multiple sclerosis, including the rapidly evolving field of disease-modifying therapeutics. However, equally important is the management of problems related to chronic multiple sclerosis and knowledge of which symptomatic treatments may be helpful. Finally, the prognosis is discussed; vital when counselling newly diagnosed patients.
