    Abstract: Purpose: We high lightened the changes in Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) and Brainstem Auditory Evoked Potentials (BAEP) in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The recordings of evoked potentials were repeated at an interval of 2 months for a total of 12 months. Results: Prolonged latencies of the VEP waves (mostly P100) gas confirmed the multifocal character of MS lesions. The positive effect of corticostheroids in MS flare and the changing course of the disease following administration of interferon. The BAEP recordings have not shown reproducible modifications. Conclusions: Succesive VEP monitoring brings on valuable information by highlighting infraclinical lesions and monitoring the evolution of the disease.
