Conference paper


Acute optic neuritis is a clinical model for the study of the dysfunction of multiple sclerosis (MS) lesions [3]. Pathophysiological approaches have been made by visual evoked potentials [1]. Examination of the size and shape of central scotoma may give a more distinct picture of progression and remission of the lesion.
