    Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, degenerative, and progressive neurological condition typified by the damaging of the myelin sheaths. For GBD, the McDonald’s criteria for diagnosis are considered the gold standard, but other definitions such as Poser Committee’s criteria and self-report of a doctor’s diagnosis are also included.
