GOVENDER, R. Guideline for the diagnosis and management of multiple sclerosis in children. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2013, vol.103, n.9, pp.692-695. ISSN 2078-5135.

Paediatric multiple sclerosis (MS) represents a particular MS subgroup with unique diagnostic challenges. Due to the narrow window of environmental exposures and clinical disease expression, children with MS may represent an important study population for gaining a better understanding of the pathogenesis of the disease. The International Paediatric MS Study Group (IPMSSG) was formulated to clarify the diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas in this population. This guideline was adapted from the International Paediatric Multiple Sclerosis Study Group guideline and endorsed by PANDA, South Africa.
