ACTRIMS 2024 | An encouraging case report of regular tDCS in a patient with PPMS

Giuseppina Pilloni, PhD, NYU Grossman School of Medicine, New York, NY, briefly discusses a case report of the use of transcranial direct current situation (tDCS) in a patient with primary progressive multiple sclerosis (MS). The patient previously underwent a failed deep brain stimulation intervention for tremors. Following the removal of the deep brain stimulator, the patient began tDCS delivered over the primary motor cortex and has since completed over 50 sessions in conjunction with regular exercise in the form of walking. Encouragingly, since the initiation of tDCS, the patient has not been hospitalized or experienced disease relapse. This interview took place during the 7th European Headache Congress (EHC) 2023.
