Sunshine / Vit D talk

I have been bombarded with numerous e-mails asking me to post something interesting as the site has become a bit boring in recent months.

Vitamin B12, demyelination, remyelination and repair in MS.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and vitamin B12 deficiency share common inflammatory and neurodegenerative pathophysiological characteristics. Due to similarities in the clinical presentations and MRI findings, the differential diagnosis between vitamin B12 deficiency and MS may be difficult.
