Abstract Title: 

[Borderline forms of multiple sclerosis].

Abstract: 

Multiple sclerosis (MS) has been described for more than a century, but its cause remains unknown and no simple diagnostic marker is available. Therefore, it is not surprising that numerous articles were written on closely related diseases, borderline forms of multiple sclerosis. Different forms have been distinguished: a clinical form of MS (Devic's neuromyelitis optica), pathological forms (Balo, Schilder, Maburg), forms associated with MS (peripheral neuropathy, autoantibodies) and closely related disorders (acute disseminated encephalomyelitis).
