Abstract

Serial visual, brainstem auditory and somatosensory evoked potentials have been recorded in 36 MS patients. The follow-up lasted 18 months. A correlation among neurophysiological modifications and clinical status of the tested pathways was inconstantly found. At the end of the study responses at the three modalities worsened in a higher percentage of progressive patients with respect to stable ones (in 41% instead of 11% of cases). Final latencies were more delayed in progressive that in stable cases.
