Description

Description

The purpose of this study is to create a database for data collected during routine clinical care of pediatric patients with possible early onset of demyelinating disease. The database will contain informatoin from multiple clinics and will help us to better understand the cause and early detection of demyelinating disorders (like MS) in children. Participants will have to answer questions about their medical history at each of their normally scheduled clinical visits, and have the option to share medical images. No other study procedures are required, and there will be no compensation for participation. Patients may be followed in the Pediatric MS Database until the age of 25 years.
