Abstract

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system that leads to a progressive breakdown of the myelin sheath by self-harming autoantibodies. Both MS and migraines have a predilection for women as opposed to men. In addition, both can come across as acute attacks on the body that negatively affect the ability of an individual to function. Are they associative concurrent afflictions or is one the primary causality of the other This case report represents a teenage girl who presented to her pediatrician with recurrent migraines, which led to a diagnosis of pediatric MS.
