Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an archetypic disorder of neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) and autoantibody-mediated disease causing fatigable weakness of skeletal muscles with an ocular onset in up to 85%. The aim of this study was to detect extra ocular muscles (EOMs) abnormalities in MG patients using ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potential (oVEMP) n10 response.
The oVEMP was performed on 40 myasthenia gravis patients that were divided into three groups: newly diagnosed (10 patients), uncontrolled on treatment (15 patients) and controlled on treatment (15 patients) groups in addition to a control group of 10 subjects. Also a comparison of oVEMP response was held between patients with generalized and ocular MG.
The oVEMP n10 showed significant difference between the 3 study groups and the control. The n10 showed no significant difference between the newly diagnosed group and the other 2 groups. There was also significant difference between uncontrolled and controlled on treatment group and between generalized and ocular types of myasthenic patients.
The oVEMP can be usefully used in diagnosis of new MG patients as regard n10 amplitude, threshold and AR except n10 latency with no therapeutic or monitoring value of oVEMP in MG.
