Question: MRV White spots

 atwitsend - Tue Sep 04, 2007 9:03 am

I am a 34 year old female with probable MS. No past diagnoses, no surgery or medication. I have a cousin with MS. I have problems with blurred vision, balance, numbness, extreme fatigue and muscle spasms in legs and arms. Would a MRV test show white spots in a MS patient? I have not been able to find any other MS patient with an abnormal MRV. My MRI also showed white spots but LP showed only one band with raised Albumin. All other tests normal. Thank you!

User avatar Hi Atwitsend,

I tried to find some information on this but wasn't really able to find anything. MRV's are variations of an MRI so depending on the imaging window used, it may still show findings that would show up on a standard MRI.

MS can have an elevated albumin level in the CSF. I would recommend that you continue to follow up with a neurologist for further investigation.

Best wishes.
