Abstract

Here we report median and common peroneal nerve SEPs in a patient with tabes dorsalis. SEPs were within normal limits following median nerve stimulation, but of prolonged latency for common peroneal nerve. This was in keeping with clinical findings of posterior column involvement confined to the lumbosacral tract and with pathological features of tabetic neurosyphilis.
