Our aims were to investigate school performance, psychiatric comorbidity, and healthcare utilization following pediatric MS and to differentiate between disability in MS and that arising from a non-brain-related chronic disease. Methods: We included all children (<18 years) with MS onset during 2008–2015 in Denmark with a medical record–validated MS diagnosis. The control groups were children from the general population or children with non-brain-related chronic diseases. Outcomes were register-based on 9–12 grade point average, psychiatric comorbidity, and healthcare visits. Results: Cohorts were children with MS (n = 92), control children matched to children with MS (n = 920), children with non-brain-related chronic diseases (n = 9108), and “healthy” children with neither MS nor brain-related chronic disease (n = 811,464). School performance in grades 9–12 was similar, but children with MS compared to those with non-brain-related chronic disease had an almost doubled hazard for psychiatric comorbidity (hazard ratio = 1.87; 95{\%} confidence interval = 1.38–2.53; p < 0.0001) and a higher rate of all hospital visits (p < 0.0001) but a lower rate of hospital admissions (p = 0.001). Conclusion: Children with MS have a seemingly standard school performance but increased psychiatric comorbidity and a high rate of healthcare utilization.",
