There are four different main types of multiple sclerosis, but there are many other diseases and sub-types that fall into the MS category.  Marburg MS is one of these sub-types.  In fact, Marburg multiple sclerosis can be considered a multiple sclerosis borderline disease, meaning some medical professionals consider it a sub-type of MS and others may consider it as a completely different disease.  It typically has many of the same symptoms of multiple sclerosis, and treatment tends to be the same as for other types of multiple sclerosis as well.

Marburg MS is the most deadly type of multiple sclerosis, and it does not always respond well to typical multiple sclerosis treatments.  It is very rare and usually strikes younger people.  This type of multiple sclerosis is very aggressive.  The symptoms progress very rapidly, leading to disability quickly after diagnosis, and unfortunately it is usually fatal.
