Visual evoked potential in multiple sclerosis and neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder: A comparative study

Post by HSowalla » Sun Jun 24, 2018 4:52 pm

Objectives The neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) was differentiated from relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS)by clinical, laboratory and physiopathological findings, including the presence of anti-aquaporin 4 (AQP4-Ab) antibody. Visual evoked potentials (VEP) are often used for the diagnosis of MS. However, the features of these VEP in the NMOSD have not been studied in detail. Our aim is to determine the epidemiological, clinical and especially neurophysiological (VEP) differences between MS and NMOSD. Methods Fourteen patients with NMOSD and 14 patients with RRMS were included in this study. The patients’ neurological symptoms and signs were examined and their VEP recorded.
