Electrophysiologic studies on the peripheral nervous system of htlv i associated myelopathy






Acta Medica Universitatis Kagoshimaensis 29(1): 7-12

Electrophysiologic studies on the peripheral nervous system of htlv i associated myelopathy

The peripheral nerve conduction and needle electromyographic (EMG) studies of 10 cases of HTLV-I Associated Myelopathy (HAM) seen in Kagoshima Prefecture are reported. Frequent polyphasic potentials and occasional giant spikes were observed in the distal extremities, and F-wave conduction velocities (FWCV) were delayed in some patients. The motor and sensory nerve conduction studies were normal. These data provide valuable insights in differentiating HAM from Familial Spastic Spinal Paraplegia (FSSP).
