Abstract

Neuropsychiatric disturbances may occur following interleukin-2 (IL2) administration. We studied the effects of IL2 infusion on cerebral functions in 7 patients with neuropsychological tests and event-related evoked potentials (P300). We observed a failure in the cognitive performances, an increase in latency, and a decrease in amplitude of P300. These effects followed IL2 administration and were reversible.
