Abstract

In 2 children, both aged 7 years, multiple sclerosis (MS) was diagnosed. In children, the initial clinical features of MS may vary greatly. The first patient presented with an acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), and the other with a hemiparesis on the left side. In both patients, the disease was controlled by prolonged pharmacotherapy, starting with methylprednisolone and followed in the first patient by intravenous infusions of immunoglobulins and in the second patient by beta-interferon.
