In brief: Close to adult???

Probably similar to adult cases, but occurs in kids with immature immune systems, and can be far more aggressive and disabling if not treated.
Like adults, it attacks brain and/or spinal cord and can result in gait, visual, strength, sensation, and cognitive problems. The diagnosis is harder to confirm in kids. Aan.Com and nat ms society, and mayo clinic websites contain lots of info.
