    Isn't MS in the vast majority of cases a disease only found in the Northern Hemispere? I had a friend with MS who was teaching in Singapore & he had a heck of a time trying to find somebody with any experience in dealing with it & when he finally found a clinic all the paitents were expats from northern climates.

    In some cases MS is diognosed after several attacks of transverse myelitis, although i dont know anybody who suffers from it, i believe that people in the southern hemisphere are also sussecptable to it.
