Although there were physicians who recognized the relapsing and progressive neurological disease in young adults earlier, the description of multiple sclerosis is usually credited to Jean-Martin Charcot, as he clarified the clinical picture and pathology of the disease remarkably well in three published lectures, and he gave the disease a name. Very little was added to Charcot’s description in the next 50 years. He published his description in 1868, and it was translated into English in 1881.
