Further evidence of involvement of central and peripheral sensory pathways in olivopontocerebellar atrophy.

We report the electrophysiological findings of the central and peripheral somatosensory pathways in 20 patients with olivopontocerebellar atrophy. Changes in sensory action potentials of the median nerve were observed in 14 patients and consisted of reduced sensory potential amplitudes associated in 10 cases with an increase in distal latencies.
