Abstract

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory, demyelinating disease that has unpredictable symptomatology and severity. Cerebellar manifestations in MS can be present at any time of the clinical course. Early cerebellar findings are a predictor of disability and disease progression. Most patients have cerebellar manifestations once they enter the progressive stages of the disease. Of the cerebellar findings, tremor is by far the most common.
