Multiple sclerosis (MS) can produce a variety of different respiratory abnormalities because of the multi-focal nature of central nervous system involvement in the disease. This article reviews the different patterns of respiratory involvement in MS and correlates them with the known neuroanatomy of respiratory control. Methods of monitoring pulmonary function in MS are explored, and the treatment of acute ventilatory failure in MS is discussed.
