Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic progressive potentially disabling disorder with a considerable social impact and economic consequences despite its relatively limited prevalence. It is the major cause of non-traumatic disability in young adults. Epidemiological data are somewhat conflicting, and while there is a wealth of economic data studies, they are often too specific to provide an overall picture for costs.
The following is a summary of available data, both epidemiological and economic, and a description of the data used to estimate the cost of MS in Europe, based on previous findings (Kobelt, 2004; Pugliatti et al., 2005).
