Incontinence is one of the most frequently encountered problems in multiple sclerosis (MS), and it has a negative effect on the daily lives of patients. Therefore, investigating this complaint and starting appropriate treatment early are important. Our study has demonstrated the internal consistency and reliability of the Turkish-language Incontinence Quality of Life Scale (I-QOL) in patients with MS. We recommend that patients with MS be investigated for incontinence, often ignored in clinical practice in Turkey, using the Turkish-language I-QOL, a comprehensible and clear scale.
