For years we've been hearing that there are roughly 400,000 cases of MS in the US. The National MS Society revised its guidelines for a prevalence study and came up with new results--which are considered preliminary but were presented at the recent ECTRIMS conference.  Instead of 400,000 the figure is 947,000. This probably doesn't represent an increase in the number of MS cases. The difference is largely due to a change in the way the tally was done.
