Bejaoui K, Rolak L.  What is the risk of permanent disability from an MS relapse?  Neurology  2010: 74: 900-902.

Authors review >2500 relapses and find only 7 with relapse with EDSS >6 that did not recover. 2 of those were on interferons at the time.  Two had a presentation of tumefactive MS.  They concluded that the fear of sudden irreversible disability should not affect treatment decisions.
