Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system, which is characterized by a progressive increase in neurological symptoms. The prevalence of MS in the world has recently increased. This is due both to a real increase in the incidence rate and to the use of modern neuroimaging methods of research. It can be assumed that sex steroid hormones affect the pathogenesis and course of MS because the prevalence of MS among women is 2 times higher than that of men, and in addition, the disease has gender differences. The predominance of women is particularly high among young patients, as well as in the family group.
