A nonspecific symptom of hearing disorder characterized by the sensation of buzzing, ringing, clicking, pulsations, and other noises in the ear. Objective tinnitus refers to noises generated from within the ear or adjacent structures that can be heard by other individuals. The term subjective tinnitus is used when the sound is audible only to the affected individual. Tinnitus may occur as a manifestation of COCHLEAR DISEASES; VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE DISEASES; INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; and other conditions.

The functional anatomy of the normal human auditory system: responses to 0.5 and 4.0 kHz tones at varied intensities. (1/499)

Most functional imaging studies of the auditory system have employed complex stimuli. We used positron emission tomography to map neural responses to 0.5 and 4.0 kHz sine-wave tones presented to the right ear at 30, 50, 70 and 90 dB HL and found activation in a complex neural network of elements traditionally associated with the auditory system as well as non-traditional sites such as the posterior cingulate cortex. Cingulate activity was maximal at low stimulus intensities, suggesting that it may function as a gain control center. In the right temporal lobe, the location of the maximal response varied with the intensity, but not with the frequency of the stimuli. In the left temporal lobe, there was evidence for tonotopic organization: a site lateral to the left primary auditory cortex was activated equally by both tones while a second site in primary auditory cortex was more responsive to the higher frequency. Infratentorial activations were contralateral to the stimulated ear and included the lateral cerebellum, the lateral pontine tegmentum, the midbrain and the medial geniculate. Contrary to predictions based on cochlear membrane mechanics, at each intensity, 4.0 kHz stimuli were more potent activators of the brain than the 0.5 kHz stimuli.  (+info)

A gene for fluctuating, progressive autosomal dominant nonsyndromic hearing loss, DFNA16, maps to chromosome 2q23-24.3. (2/499)

The sixteenth gene to cause autosomal dominant nonsyndromic hearing loss (ADNSHL), DFNA16, maps to chromosome 2q23-24.3 and is tightly linked to markers in the D2S2380-D2S335 interval. DFNA16 is unique in that it results in the only form of ADNSHL in which the phenotype includes rapidly progressing and fluctuating hearing loss that appears to respond to steroid therapy. This observation suggests that it may be possible to stabilize hearing through medical intervention, once the biophysiology of deafness due to DFNA16 is clarified. Especially intriguing is the localization of several voltage-gated sodium-channel genes to the DFNA16 interval. These cationic channels are excellent positional and functional DFNA16 candidate genes.  (+info)

Role of L-type Ca(2+) channels in transmitter release from mammalian inner hair cells I. Gross sound-evoked potentials. (3/499)

Intracochlear perfusion and gross potential recording of sound-evoked neural and hair cell responses were used to study the site of action of the L-type Ca(2+) channel blocker nimodipine in the guinea pig inner ear. In agreement with previous work nimodipine (1-10 microM) caused changes in both the compound auditory nerve action potential (CAP) and the DC component of the hair cell receptor potential (summating potential, or SP) in normal cochleae. For 20-kHz stimulation, the effect of nimodipine on the CAP threshold was markedly greater than the effect on the threshold of the negative SP. This latter result was consistent with a dominant action of nimodipine at the final output stage of cochlear transduction: either the release of transmitter from inner hair cells (IHCs) or the postsynaptic spike generation process. In animals in which the outer hair cells (OHCs) had been destroyed by prior administration of kanamycin, nimodipine still caused a large change in the 20-kHz CAP threshold, but even less change was observed in the negative SP threshold than in normal cochleae. When any neural contamination of the SP recording in kanamycin-treated animals was removed by prior intracochlear perfusion with TTX, nimodipine caused no significant change in SP threshold. Some features of the data also suggest a separate involvement of nimodipine-sensitive channels in OHC function. Perfusion of the cochlea with solutions containing Ni(2+) (100 microM) caused no measurable change in either CAP or SP. These results are consistent with, but do not prove, the notion that L-type channels are directly involved in controlling transmitter release from the IHCs and that T-type Ca(2+) channels are not involved at any stage of cochlear transduction.  (+info)

The neural correlates of 'deaf-hearing' in man: conscious sensory awareness enabled by attentional modulation. (4/499)

Attentional modulation of normal sensory processing has a two-fold impact on human brain activity: activation of a network of localized brain regions is associated with paying attention, and activation of specific sensory regions is enhanced relative to passive stimulation. The mechanisms underlying attentional modulation of perception in patients with lesions of sensory cortices are less well understood. Here we report a unique patient suffering from extensive bilateral destruction of the auditory cortices (including the primary auditory fields) who demonstrated conscious perception of the onset and offset of sounds only when selectively attending to the auditory modality. This is the first description of such an attentively modulated 'deaf-hearing' phenomenon and its neural correlates, using H(2)(15)O-PET. Increases in cerebral blood flow associated with conscious awareness of sound that was achieved by listening attentively (compared with identical auditory stimulation presented when the patient was inattentive) were found bilaterally in the lateral (pre)frontal cortices, the spared middle temporal cortices and the cerebellar hemispheres. We conclude that conscious awareness of sounds may be achieved in the absence of the primary auditory cortex, and that selective, 'top-down' attention, associated with prefrontal systems, exerts a crucial modulatory effect on auditory perception within the remaining auditory system.  (+info)

A case-control auditory evaluation of patients treated with artemisinin derivatives for multidrug-resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria. (5/499)

The artemisinin derivatives are now used widely in areas with multidrug-resistant Plasmodium falciparum malaria such as Southeast Asia, but concerns remain over their potential for neurotoxicity. Mice, rats, dogs, and monkeys treated with high doses of intramuscular artemether or arteether develop an unusual pattern of focal damage to brain stem nuclei (particularly those involved in auditory processing). To investigate whether a similar toxic effect occurs in patients treated with these compounds, clinical neurologic evaluation, audiometry and early latency auditory evoked responses were measured in a single-blind comparison of 79 patients who had been treated with > or =2 courses of oral artemether or artesunate within the previous 3 years, and 79 age- and sex-matched controls living in a malaria-endemic area on the northwestern border of Thailand. There were no consistent differences in any of these test results between the cases and controls. This study failed to detect any evidence of significant neurotoxicity in patients treated previously with oral artemether or artesunate for acute malaria.  (+info)

Noise-induced hearing loss. (6/499)

Hearing loss caused by exposure to recreational and occupational noise results in devastating disability that is virtually 100 percent preventable. Noise-induced hearing loss is the second most common form of sensorineural hearing deficit, after presbycusis (age-related hearing loss). Shearing forces caused by any sound have an impact on the stereocilia of the hair cells of the basilar membrane of the cochlea; when excessive, these forces can cause cell death. Avoiding noise exposure stops further progression of the damage. Noise-induced hearing loss can be prevented by avoiding excessive noise and using hearing protection such as earplugs and earmuffs. Patients who have been exposed to excessive noise should be screened. When hearing loss is suspected, a thorough history, physical examination and audiometry should be performed. If these examinations disclose evidence of hearing loss, referral for full audiologic evaluation is recommended.  (+info)

Effects of renal transplantation on hearing and ocular changes in a monozygotic twin with Alport's syndrome: comparison with other twin on hemodialysis. (7/499)

AIM: To present a unique case of Alport's syndrome in monozygotic twins with two different treatment modalities - renal transplantation and hemodialysis, and to evaluate the effects of therapy on hearing and ophthalmological findings. METHODS: Pure-tone audiogram and ophthalmologic examinations were performed in both twins at the age of 30. At the age of 46, 4 years after renal transplantation in the first twin and after 6 years of hemodialysis in the second twin, both twins underwent control audiometric and ophthalmologic examinations. RESULTS: Control audiometric measurements showed the progression of bilateral sensorineural hearing loss in the high-frequency range (>2,000 Hz) in both twins. The hearing threshold progressed from initial 50 dB in both twins at the time of the diagnosis to 55 dB in the twin on hemodialysis, and 85 dB in the twin with a transplanted kidney. Retinal blurry hyperpigmentations disappeared in the twin with a transplanted kidney. CONCLUSION: In comparison with hemodialysis, renal transplantation in Alport's syndrome may have deleterious effect on hearing, when associated with plasma hyperviscosity and hyperlipidemia, but may lead to regression of retinal hyperpigmentation.  (+info)

No evidence of measles virus in stapes samples from patients with otosclerosis. (8/499)

Otosclerosis is a localized bone dystrophy of unknown etiology mainly involving the stapes. The hypothesis of a persistent infection by the measles virus was based on the inconstant detection of the virus by various methods, including reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) of patients' stapes samples. The aim of this work was to investigate the presence of the measles virus in stapedial otosclerosis foci by different sensitive methods. Pathologic stapes samples were obtained from 35 patients suffering from otosclerosis. Measles virus detection was performed by (i) cocultures of Vero cells and primary cell cultures of bone samples (n = 7), (ii) immunofluorescence study of these cocultures (n = 3), and (iii) RT-PCR on RNA directly obtained from fresh frozen samples (n = 28) and on RNA extracted from the primary cell cultures (n = 2). Viral genomic regions coding for N (nucleoprotein) and M (matrix) proteins were separately amplified. PCR sensitivity was optimized on the measles virus Edmonston strain. Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase mRNA was used as a marker of total RNA recovery. PCR products were tested by Southern blot hybridization technique to improve sensitivity and specificity. PCRs amplifying the M and the N protein genes were able to detect the control measles virus RNA at titers as low as 0.1 and 0.01 50% tissue culture infective dose, respectively. With these highly sensitive methods, we could not evidence the presence of the measles virus in any of our bone samples or primary bone cell cultures. Our results do not confirm the hypothesis of persistent measles virus infection in otosclerosis.  (+info)

Objective: Celiac disease ( CD) is a gluten-triggered immune enteropathy caused by a genetic predisposition. Recent papers suggest that CD is increasingly recognized by extraintestinal findings. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of CD on hearing pathway including the olivocochlear efferent system in children. Methods: Forty-one pediatric CD patients and 31 controls were included in the study. Both groups were evaluated with audiometry, tympanometry, transiently evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE), distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE), and contralateral suppression of the TEOAE. Results: The threshold at 250 Hz of the patients with CD was significantly higher (p < 0.05 in CD compared to control group, p < 0.0001). The signal to noise ratio (SNR) amplitudes in DPOAE testing and the SNR amplitudes with and without contralateral acoustic stimulus in TEOAE testing were significantly lower at 1,000 Hz in the CD compared to the control group. There was no significant ...

These tests check how well your child can hear.. In pure tone audiometry, a machine called an audiometer plays a series of tones through headphones. The tones change in pitch and loudness. The person giving the test will reduce the loudness of a tone until your child can no longer hear it. Then the tone will get louder until your child can hear it again. If your child can hear the tone, he or she will signal by raising a hand or pressing a button. The headphones will then be removed. A special vibrating device will be placed on the bone behind your childs ear. Again, your child will signal each time he or she hears a tone.. In play audiometry, the child responds to the tone he or she hears by a play activity, such as dropping a block or putting a toy in a container. ...
