This study assessed the validity of established MRI criteria for multiple sclerosis (MS) in a cohort of 20 children with clinically definite MS. The authors found that many pediatric MS patients did not meet the MRI criteria established for adult-onset MS, particularly the McDonald MRI criteria for dissemination in space. The authors thus suggest that MRI criteria for adult MS be applied cautiously to pediatric MS patients.
