Due to the impact of the effect of cognition and the epidemiology of MS, our aim is to review the epidemiology of MS.  In this review, by using keywords including Multiple Sclerosis and through searches on valid scientific databases such as Google Scholar, PubMed, ScienceDirect, Web of Science, Ovid Medline and WHO site, articles and dissertations from 1990 to 2019 were found and reviewed. The studies show that many factors such as age, gender, geographical location, etc. influence the increasing incidence of MS. In this review, we aimed to review the epidemiology of MS.
