Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) results in a wide range of functional limitations that can lead to multiple disabilities. Symptoms arising from bladder dysfunction can profoundly affect various aspects of an individual's daily life. Therefore, in determining bladder problems and initiating the appropriate treatment, there is increasing interest in the use of well-constructed questionnaires studying quality of life. The aim of the study was to demonstrate the reliability and validity of the Qualiveen scale in Turkish language in patients with MS.
