In brief: Vast differences

Scoliosis is a curvature of spine which can be congenital, or associated with many childhood neuromuscular disorders as a secondary aspect, and is a bony deformity.
MS is an autoimmune disorder which affects brain, spinal cord, and eyes, and involves an inflammatory attack upon these structures, but does NOT affect bony structures directly.
