A retrospective case-control study was carried out on 230 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and 230 controls matched for year of birth and sex. The geographical distribution of residence of MS patients and controls was similar. Two peak ages of onset of MS were observed among woman patients (20-24, 30-34 years). There was no difference in histories of infectious diseases and autoimmune diseases between the two groups. A greater number of hairdressers was noticed among the patient group (p less than 0.05) and three patients (no control) had had professional contact with pathology specimens.
