McDonald Criteria for Multiple Sclerosis (2017 Revision)
Changes from the 2010 McDonald Criteria:
Presence of CSF-specific oligoclonal bands may now substitute for dissemination in time (DIT) even if baseline MRI findings do not meet DIT criteria.
In patients with brainstem or spinal cord attacks, symptomatic lesions may now be included as MRI evidence of dissemination in space (DIS) or DIT.
Cortical lesions may now fulfill MRI criteria for DIS (in addition to juxtacortical lesions).
