Title

How common is MS in children and what is age of onset?  

Body

MS is usually thought of as a disease of adults, with the highest incidence of new diagnosis among people in their 20's to 40's. It can rarely occur in children (less than 18) and very rare in children less than 10. Children with MS generally experience the same types of symptoms as adults, including possible cognitive dysfunction that may affect school performance.
