Finding alternative causes in patients with classic symptoms and no atypical features was, in Dr. Cohen's experience, "very unusual." For patients in whom multiple sclerosis has already been established, he cautioned colleagues to be vigilant to overlying pathologies that might be contributing to symptoms and to always evaluate the main source of a patient's disability.
