Bacterial meningitis may cause inner ear fibrosis and progressive cochlear ossification with irreversible profound hearing loss (HL). Recognition of potential ossification is essential for effective management. We present a clinical case of a 4 year old boy who developed a progressive HL starting 3 weeks after meningitis. For the prospective risk of cochlear ossification, bilateral cochlear implantation (CI) was performed. Unexpectedly, unaided hearing threshold began to show improvement on the left ear, starting 4 months after meningitis and continuing for years post CI surgery...

OBJECTIVES: Auditory brainstem responses (ABR) are used to evaluate the peripheral and central functions of the auditory tract. Air and bone-conduction auditory stimuli are used to evaluate the type and degree of hearing loss. The wave latencies and interpeak latencies (IPLs) are the important diagnostic data in ABR tests. Gender and age of the patients are some of the factors affecting these latencies. This study investigated the effects of age and gender on the wave and IPLs of bone-conduction ABR...

Luc's abscess is an extremely rare complication of otitis media, caused by the spread of the middle ear infection to the subperiosteal area and its accumulation beneath the temporal muscle. Unlike other subperiosteal abscesses relating to otitis media, infection may not be associated with mastoid bone involvement. Therefore, it is defined as a benign complication of otitis media. However, its rare occurrence may lead to delayed diagnosis and treatment. Here we report a case of an 11-year-old boy diagnosed with Luc's abscess with mastoid involvement...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to reveal the possible role of endothelial dysfunction in sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) by determining the serum endocan levels of patients with varying degrees of SNHL. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with documented SNHL and healthy controls were included in the study, whereas those with a known history of chronic inflammatory condition were excluded. In addition, a recent history of use of glucocorticoids, nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drugs, or any ototoxic medications was also considered as an exclusion criterion due to its potential impact on endocan synthesis and metabolism...

OBJECTIVES: Auditory brainstem potentials can be elicited by electrical stimulation of the round window (RW). In this technique, extracochlear stimulation is objectively used in the selection of cochlear implant (CI) candidates to avoid cochlear damage. However, until now, its use is limited due to the large artifacts generated by electrical stimulation. Our objective was to obtain reliable and reproducible electrically evoked auditory brainstem responses (eEABRs) using a new method of stimulation...

OBJECTIVES: To describe and quantify computed tomography (CT) findings of auto-evacuated (spontaneously drained) secondary acquired cholesteatoma (SAC). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This multicenter retrospective study included 69 patients with intermittent ear discharge diagnosed with SAC by autoscopy or automicroscopy who were surgically treated. Three independent radiologists measured the medial and lateral attic distance on coronal and axial planes using multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) in 75 ear CTs from 69 patients with intraoperatively verified diagnoses of pars flaccida cholesteatoma (n=36), pars tensa cholesteatoma (n=24), and auto-atticotomy or automastoidectomy (n=15) and compared them with contralateral healthy ears...

Herein, we report a case of otitis media caused by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), presenting as falsely positive for proteinase 3 (PR3)-antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA). A 47-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with a complaint of left otorrhea. An otorrhea culture yielded MRSA, and the patient was treated using tympanoplasty. Postoperative administration of teicoplanin lead to drug-induced neutropenia and was discontinued 4 days after the operation. One month after the operation, the patient's otorrhea recurred, and it was accompanied by hearing impairment...

Different types of otic capsule dehiscence restricted to the cochlea have been described. Here we describe the case of a patient with a cochlear-internal auditory canal dehiscence associated with a cochlear-facial dehiscence not reported before. A 53-year-old patient with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss due to bilateral Meniere's disease underwent a cochlear implant surgery on the right ear. Preoperative brain magnetic resonance imaging findings were reported to be normal; during surgery, a cerebrospinal fluid gusher occurred at the time of round window opening...

We present a rare case of traumatic facial and vestibulocochlear nerve injury in the internal acoustic canal in the absence of a temporal bone fracture. A 2.5-year-old female presented with sudden-onset left-sided facial paralysis and ipsilateral total hearing loss after being hit by a falling television. High-resolution computed tomography revealed an occipital fracture line that spared the temporal bone and otic capsule. Diagnostic auditory brainstem response testing showed that wave V at 90-db normal hearing level was absent in the left ear...

Meniere Disease keeps challenges in its diagnosis and treatment since was defined by Prosper Meniere at the beginning of 19th Century. Several classifications and definition were made until now and speculations still exist on its etiology. As the etiology remains speculative the treatment models remain in discussion also. The European Academy of Otology and Neurotology Vertigo Guidelines Study Group intended to work on the diagnosis and treatment of Meniere's disease and created the European Positional Statement Document also by resuming the consensus studies on it...

OBJECTIVE: Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most frequent peripheral vestibular disorder and is particularly seen among older patients suffering from vertigo. The brief vertigo attacks in and imbalance symptoms of BPPV are caused by freely floating otoconia within the semicircular canals. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the role of oxidative stress, using native thiol/disulfide (SH/SS) homeostasis as a novel indicator, in the etiology of BPPV. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The 62 participants in the study included 31 patients with BPPV and, as the control group, 31 healthy individuals without any cochleovestibular disorders...
