    Default (ECTRIMS 2017) Revised McDonald criteria for diagnosing MS

    This article in MedPage Today (October 26) summarizes a presentation at the recent ECTRIMS conference (Paris, October 25-28) about the revised McDonald criteria for diagnosing MS. The McDonald criteria have been in use for quite a while for establishing a diagnosis of MS, and now they are being revised to include the presence of oligoclonal bands in the spinal fluid--which means that anyone who is apt to be diagnosed with MS is likely to have a spinal tap (lumbar puncture) done as part of the diagnostic workup.
