Abstract

The authors studied phoria adaptation to horizontal base-out prism in 17 patients with well-documented cerebellar lesions. There was no significant difference between mean adaptation measured in the patients and ten normal controls. Individually, normal adaptation was found in 12 patients. Abnormal adaptation was found in five patients, all but one of which had other neurologic lesions. These results suggest that phoria adaptation to base-out prism is not diminished by a cerebellar lesion unless it is accompanied by another nervous system lesion(s).
