Benign and Malignant Kinds of Multiple Sclerosis

Benign Types of Multiple Sclerosis

In addition to the four main patterns of MS, 20 percent of the multiple sclerosis population has a benign form of the disease in which symptoms show little or no progression after the initial attack. Patients with benign MS remain fully functional.
