    Which is more sensitive in multiple sclerosis: Optical coherence tomography or visual evoked potentials?

    Objectives Visual involvement is a frequent feature of multiple sclerosis (MS). Visual disturbances involve up to 80% of patients and optic neuritis (ON) occurs in about 50%. Our aim was to assess the sensitivity of optic coherence tomography (OCT) and visual evoked potentials (VEPs) to visual pathway abnormalities in MS. Methods A total of 19 MS subjects, 9 with optic neuritis (ON) at least 3 months before (bilateral in 6), underwent assessment of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and VEPs. Results There were 19 patients with MS, so a total of 38 eyes. The sex ratio was 0.73 F/M ...
