Abstract: Patient presentation: The case of a fictitious 51-year-old female patient diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (MS) is presented. She is referred to the Neuropsychology service. Description of the pathology: Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic neurodegenerative disease of the central nervous system (CNS). It is an autoimmune inflammatory process and mainly affects the white matter, the communication between neurons is altered and typical symptoms of MS appear. Myelin loss and subsequent neurodegeneration causes cognitive alterations and motor and sensory symptoms. Main results of the evaluation: The patient presents attentional difficulties, concentration difficulties and slowing of information processing speed. Alterations in executive functions, memory and high fatigue are observed. The aim of the intervention is to reduce the emotional, behavioral and cognitive difficulties and minimize the impact on daily life, optimize the skills preserved in the family, social and work environments and use external aids. The neuropsychological intervention consists of 48 sessions over 6 months, lasting approximately 40 minutes. It will include computer tasks, paper and pencil and play activities. The altered functions are worked on: memory, organization, planning, inhibition, attention, concentration and processing speed. This intervention includes family participation, psychoeducation and compensatory strategies. Cognitive rehabilitation aims to improve the patient's quality of life and her adaptation to the environment by obtaining a greater degree of autonomy.
