A 65-year-old male asked:

This is a general question about multiple sclerosis. is it only rarely the case that a brain lesion due to ms goes away? in your personal opinion, what is the best treatment for ms? i realize that not everyone responds to a treatment equally.

MS: Brain lesions in MS may recede on MRI irrespective of presence or absence of symptoms. I feel the best treatment for MS is obtained from a neurologist with a special interest in that disorder. He/she would be up to date on all available treatment options.
