Disease Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Progressive

Name Multiple Sclerosis, Chronic Progressive
Synonyms Chronic Progressive Multiple Sclerosis | Multiple Sclerosis, Primary Progressive | Multiple Sclerosis, Progressive Relapsing | Multiple Sclerosis, Remittent Progressive | Multiple Sclerosis, Secondary Progressive | Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis | Progressive Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis | Remittent Progressive Multiple Sclerosis | Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis
Definition A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form.
