Question about diagnosis wording


My name is Cara. My husband was recently diagnosed (last week) with what his neurologist believes is PPMS. However, I was reading his diagnosis from the lab and the wording is confusing to me. Can someone help?

The findings say this:

"There is a severe leukoencephalopathy involving essentially every white matter region." (It then goes on to describe exactly *where* all of this leukoencephalopathy is.)

Then at the bottom of the paragraph, the last ...
