The data were analyzed by pearson correlation coefficient, one way analysis of variance, Tukey's test and stepwise multiple regression. Results: Patients with 3 or more times the number of relapses and hospitalizations experienced, received significantly more depression scores than patients with lower frequent relapse and hospitalization. In addition, sub-clinical markers of the disease together could explain 30% of the shared variance of depression. Overall in final step limitations due to physical problems, fatigue and bodily pain could significantly predicts depression scores in patients (P <0.0001). Conclusion: This study highlighted the impact of multiple sclerosis sub-clinical markers in depression of patients. Hence, is requirement that identified key predictors of this research be considered as possible risk factors in development of depression associated with multiple sclerosis and used for the regular management of the disease.
