Pattern reversal visual evoked potential (VEP) test was performed in 30 asymptomatic patients with neurofibromatosis (NF). All patients had normal visual acuity, visual fields, and ophthalmoscopic examination results. Pattern reversal VEP was abnormal in eight patients (26%). Seven of these patients had computed tomographic scans with reformated orbital(More)
Median and posterior tibial somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) were studied on 25 patients with pathologically proven intraspinal neoplasms, and the results were compared and correlated with the details of clinical examination and the information derived from magnetic resonance imaging (MR). MR was abnormal in all cases and in 23 of 25 (92%)(More)
Somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) to median and posterior tibial stimulation were obtained in 22 patients with syringomyelia. All patients had magnetic resonance imaging (MR) which defined the maximum transverse diameter of the syrinx as well as its longitudinal extension. SEP was abnormal in 16 (72%) patients. Median and posterior tibial SEPs were(More)
