Somatosensory evoked potential measures of conduction in peripheral and central pathways in children with protein-calorie malnutrition.

Abstract

The effects of malnutrition on conduction in peripheral and central somatosensory pathways in humans, as measured by short-latency somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) have not been previously reported. A group of 28 children with kwashiorkor were compared to a control group of 35 children, aged 6-36 months. The malnourished group had longer reciprocal… (More)
