Parry–Romberg syndrome (PRS) is a rare disease that causes hemiatrophy of the face. The pathophysiological mechanisms involved in its etiology are unknown, but several previous reports suggest the involvement of autoimmune factors. In the case-reoprt that we introduce, we raise the question that can multiple sclerosis (MS) be a possible cause of PRS? Can Radiologically isolated syndrome(RIS) cause PRS?
