A message from Dr. Lauren Krupp, director of the National Pediatric MS Center at Stony Brook, New York:

"MS is typically diagnosed in adults, but children as young as two have developed it. In our center, 95% of the children and teens with MS do not have a parent with MS. It is critically important for adults with MS not to think that their children are at risk.

"It is just as vital for young adults who have a parent with MS not to think that they are at risk. Genetics plays a very small role in making a person susceptible to MS."
