There is a needfor further longitudinal studies that present electrophysiological data of children and adolescents undergoing chemotherapy. In this study, it was possible to investigate the brainstem auditory pathway in children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia during chemotherapy using methotrexate. ABR has been shown to be useful in the detection of early auditory deterioration caused by using chemotherapeutic drugs, making it necessary to develop less toxic treatments to the central auditory nervous system.
