Motor nerve conduction velocity was measured in 52 hypertensive and 10 control subjects. Reduction of nerve conduction velocity paralleled elevation of blood pressure and retinal changes. No correlation was found between nerve conduction velocity and the duration of hypertension. Nerve conduction velocity can provide us with an objective measurable index of the severity of hypertension.
