Özet

Objective: Early degeneration of the knees might occur in patients with multiple sclerosis secondary to balance and walking impairment and muscle weakness. The aims of this study were to evaluate the knee joints of patients with multiple sclerosis compared with healthy controls, using ultrasonography, and to investigate whether there is any correlation between femoral cartilage degeneration and disease-related parameters.
