 Background & Aims: One of the biggest problems that develop in patients with multiple sclerosis is cognitive dysfunction. The aim of the present study was comparison of visual-spatial memory between multiple sclerosis patients and healthy ones.

 Materials & Methods: In this research, 38 healthy individual and 38 multiple sclerosis were selected by convenience sampling method. 25 patients with RRMS and 13 patients were diagnosed with PRMS. In order to analyze the data t-Test and Pearson correlation coefficient were used.

 Results : Our results indicate that visual memory - spatial MS patients is lower than normal. Also, patients with better RRMS performance on tests of complex shapes Rey-Osterrieth were compared to PRMS. In this study, the relationship between disease duration and visual memory - the spatial relationship between the patient groups was not significant

 Conclusion: Accordingly, there was cognitive dysfunction in patients with multiple sclerosis.
