Lubbers reports on eleven cases of multiple sclerosis. In nine there were ophthalmoscopic changes in the disc (atrophy and neuritis). In seven there was a central scotoma and normal peripheric field; in one a scotoma with contraction of the field; in two irregular peripheric contraction; and in one case the field was normal. In seven cases ocular muscles were affected. All the patients had nystagmus.
