Can a frontal lobe brain injury cause MS ?

In brief: Probably not

The exact cause of multiple sclerosis is not well understood.
However, researchers have looked at a link between brain injury and ms. It is a very weak relationship. About 1 person in 5000 who has a brain injury may get ms, so i wouldn't worry too much about it.

In brief: Not at all

There is no relationship of trauma causing ms in any case, ever. Whether certain injuries could worsen ms may be still controversial.
