multiple sclerosis definition

multiple sclerosis means an inflammatory, nervous system disease in which the myelin sheaths around the axons of nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord are damaged, leading to demyelination and affecting the ability of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord to communicate with each other;
multiple sclerosis means the unequivocal diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis confirmed by a consultant neurologist.
multiple sclerosis means the unequivocal diagnosis of multiple sclerosis by two consultant neurologists resulting in at least a permanent 25% impairment of whole person function as defined in Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment 5th edition, American Medical Association.

More Definitions of multiple sclerosis

multiple sclerosis means definite occurrence of Multiple Sclerosis. The Diagnosis must be supported by all of the following:
multiple sclerosis means a definite Diagnosis of at least one (1) of the following:
multiple sclerosis means a definite Diagnosis of at least one (1) of the following: two (2) or more separate clinical attacks, confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the nervous system, showing multiple lesions or demyelination; or well-defined neurological abnormalities lasting more than six (6) months, confirmed by MRIimaging of the nervous system, showing multiple lesions of demyelination; or a single attack, confirmed by repeated MRI imaging of the nervous system, which shows multiple lesions of demyelination which have developed at intervals at least one (1) month apart.
multiple sclerosis. Means demyelination of nervous tissue.The diagnosis has to be made by a consultant neurologist confirming more than one episode of well defined neurological deficit with persisting permanent neurological abnormalities and with at least 25% impairment of whole person function (but not necessarily confined to a wheelchair).The diagnosis will be based on confirmatory neurological investigations eg. lumbar puncture, evoked visual responses, evoked auditory responses and NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) evidence of lesions of the central nervous system.
multiple sclerosis means the occurrence of at least two episodes of well-defined neurological abnormalities, with objective evidence of lesions at more than one site within the central nervous system. In order for Multiple Sclerosis to be covered under this rider, a Neurologist must make a definitive diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, supported by modern imaging and/or investigative techniques. A Neurologist means a doctor of medicine certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology.
