  • We report the case of a male multiple sclerosis (MS) patient with type 2 diabetes (T2D), asthma, major depression (MD or major depressive disorder, MDD), and other chronic conditions, after his recent difficulties with craniopharyngioma and cranial nerve-VI (CN6) palsy. In addition, we show magnetic resonance image and spectroscopy (MRI, MRS), Humphrey's Visual Field (HVF), and retinal nerve fiber layer thickness (RNFLT) findings to explain the changes in the patient's health, and discuss the methods that helped/help him sustain productivity and euthymia despite long-standing problems and new CNS changes.
