Sažetak
We report a rare case of syringomyelia, the development of which was monitored by somatosensory evoked potentials. The evoked potentials recorded over an eight mmonths period of time were correlated with the incidence of syringomyelia. Changes of the evoked response latency and amplitude were detected. The evoked potential change and the sensation deficit indicated a pathological process. High-resolution MRI revealed syringomyelia in the cervical and the thoracic segments of the spinal cord. Somatosensory evoked potentiaals represent a sensitive diagnostic method recording changes in thebiopotentials. Potential changes require localisation of a possible processand high-resolution MRI. Evoked potentials enable to monitor both, the disease development, but also the healing process.
