Abstract

Four patients (aged between 15 and 49 years) with Ramsay Hunt syndrome underwent a full neurophysiological study, including somatosensory and brainstem evoked potentials 1 SEPs revealed giant N33 components, as already described in the literature. Brainstem evoked potentials showed the following features: one patient had an increase of I-V interval with a normal morphology of peaks. The remaining 3 patients had an abnormal morphology of II, III and IV waves. These findings may be related to cerebellar and brainstem involvement usually found in Ramsay Hunt syndrome.
