A cohort of 50 consecutive patients with acute monosymptomatic optic neuritis (ON) from a defined catchment area joined a prospective study. The aim of this study was to compare the sensitivity of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electrophysiological methods (VEP and SEP) and biothesiometry to detect abnormalities in other parts of the CNS than the optic nerves during the acute phase of ON. For each method, a scoring system is proposed. This investigation also hoped to achieve a better… CONTINUE READING
