While inflammatory diseases affecting the CNS can produce a huge range of symptoms, depending on the exact nature of the disease process, the range of therapeutic options in these conditions is rather limited. Almost all the available treatments depend on some form of suppression of immunological function. These have been explored to the greatest extent in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, so the present account focuses on this disease, and it mentions other inflammatory conditions under the headings of the various types of available therapies.

Keywords:   inflammatory diseases, CNS, disease process, immunological function, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory conditions
