Esclerosis   Múltiple: Guía Practica para el Recién Diagnosticado
  Dra Teresa Corona Vazquez and Patricia F. De Thomas

The diagnosis of multiple   sclerosis (MS) poses potential concerns related to all aspects of life and plans   for the future. Family members and other loved ones are similarly concerned,   and everyone involved struggles to make sense of life with this permanent intruder.   One of the first responses is usually an active search for information about   the disease itself and its potential long-term effects. This book was written   specifically for newly diagnosed people with MS, their families, and friends.

Until now, there have not   been any books dealing with these issues in the Spanish language. This new translation   will be of interest to all Spanish-speaking people with MS in the United States,   Central and South America, and elsewhere. Following are copies of the title   page, table of contents, and preface for the book.

Esclerosis Múltiple:   Guía Practica para el Recién Diagnosticado is designed for use   as an educational tool for those who have just received the diagnosis of MS   and in support groups and seminars for the newly diagnosed. It offers up-to-date   information about living effectively with this life-altering diagnosis. This   new Spanish language edition includes updated information and addresses the   changing needs of those diagnosed with MS in this era of rapidly expanding information   about the disease and its management.
