Comparing clinical and neuropsychological indices of multiple sclerosis and inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy

Zh Nevrol Psikhiatr Im S S Korsakova. 2004;104(3):52-4

A comparison study of some clinical and neuropsychological indices in two demyelinating disorders--multiple sclerosis (17 patients, mean age 31.6 years) and inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (7 patients, mean age 49.5 years) was conducted, using electromyography with registration of impulse velocity conduction along the nerve and M-responses as well as of the parameters of movement units potentials.

The data obtained suggest the presence of demyelinating lesions of central and peripheral nervous systems, namely, symptoms of axonal demyelinating polyneuropathy with the prevalence of demyelinating process, its dissemination and generalization, in both disorders.
