    The Differences between Visual Evoked Potential Parameter Values in Recurrent Optic Neuritis in Patients with Demyelinating Diseases
    Author(s): Lina James*, Charlotte Elice and James Victor

    Purpose: To demonstrate the differences between visual evoked potential parameter values in recurrent optic neuritis in younger patients suffering from demyelinating diseases. Design: Retrospective observational study-case series. Methods: 18 patients aged 14-36 diagnosed with optic neuritis. Each patient underwent an eye examination, VEP test, neurologic examination and an adequate corticosteroid therapy, both in acute and recurrent optic neuritis. Results: A statistically significant difference was observed in all subjects with regard to the values of visual acuity, amplitude and latency of the P100 wave in acute and recurrent optic neuritis (p<0.001). We also found a statistically significant spread between the eyes in recurrent optic neuritis (p=0.01). The mean value of visual acui.. View More»
