Marburg disease afects young people and is characterized by an acute onset with a fulminant course. The disease leads to death within 1 year from the onset of symptoms. In Academician S. N. Fedorov «Eye Microsurgery» Center (Moscow) a patient with Marburg multiple sclerosis was followed up for seven years. Standard treatment in combination with physiotherapy treatment slowed the development of an irreversible decrease in visual function due to atrophy of the optic nerves.
