Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The pneumoencephalogram has been the only diagnostic test available to confirm the diagnosis of olivopontocerebellar degeneration during life. This study suggests that pneumoencephalography may be obsolete and that the diagnosis of olivopontocerebellar degeneration may be established by abnormalities seen during computerized tomography (CT) and by abnormal responses to auditory-evoked potentials (AEPs). The combination of CT scans and AEPs provides a completely nontraumatic method of diagnosis in olivopontocerebellar degeneration and eliminates the need for pneumoencephalography.
