Zipp and colleagues note that although multiple sclerosis (MS) has long been considered a primarily inflammatory, demyelinating disease of the central nervous system, modern histopathology and imaging techniques show that neurodegenerative processes also have a definitive role in MS pathology. They review reports from the last decade and outline clinical results on the topic.
