Abstract

Although the use of specific MRI criteria has significantly increased the diagnostic accuracy of multiple sclerosis (MS), reaching a correct neuroradiological diagnosis remains a challenging task, and therefore the search for new imaging biomarkers is crucial. This study aims to evaluate the incidence of one of the emerging neuroradiological signs highly suggestive of MS, the central vein sign (CVS), using data from Fabry disease (FD) patients as an index of microvascular disorder that could mimic MS.
