Abstract

The visual evoked potential to pattern reversal was recorded in 50 patients with sarcoidosis. Abnormalities of latency and amplitude were found in 15 patients (30%), including all 4 patients with clinically evident brain disease and 4 of 17 patients with overt ocular disease. Twenty-nine patients had no clinical evidence of ocular or neurologic disease, and 7 of them (24%) had abnormalities of the VEP, implying subclinical sarcoid lesions in structures at the base of the brain.
