ConclusionFatigue in MS is a multifactorial construct, with perceived fatigue and cognitive performance fatigability largely influenced by indirect psychological and cognitive factors. Future studies need to take these influences into account when developing fatigue assessment tools. Further, targeting influential fatigue drivers such as psychological variables may improve the burden of fatigue and quality of life of people with MS.

A 50-year-old Caucasian male was admitted to hospital in 2009, with severe acute transverse myelitis. A brain and spinal cord MRI showed multiple demyelinating lesions and cerebrospinal fluid analysis revealed no oligoclonal bands (OCBs). A diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) was made. He was treated with interferon-beta 1a, then with...
