Cholesteatoma is a serious otolaryngologic condition that to date remains an important problem and poses a challenge to otolaryngologists around the world. To improve the approach pertaining to the diagnosis and management of middle ear cholesteatoma, clear, clinically applicable, and useful definition and classification of cholesteatoma are required. This review aimed to evaluate the current and most accepted descriptions and opinions concerning cholesteatoma. A review of the literature concerning different definitions and classifications of cholesteatoma was used in the preparation of the Cholesteatoma Guidelines, a project implemented by the European Academy of Otology - Neuro-otology...

OBJECTIVE: An elective investigation into the early diagnosis of deafness in children under the age of 4-5 years is performed using auditory evoked potentials of auditory brainstem responses (ABRs). In case of pediatric patients, the major difficulty includes being examined during spontaneous sleep, which is complicated to obtain, especially in the age range of 12 to 72 months. Recently, melatonin has been used as a "sleep inducer" in diagnostic tests with positive results. Our aim was to evaluate the use of melatonin and of a solution containing melatonin, tryptophan, and vitamin B6 as an inducer of spontaneous sleep on repeated ABR analyses as well as to evaluate the reduction in analyses with sedative drugs in case of uncooperative patients...

OBJECTIVE: Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a common type of vertigo caused by the peripheral vestibular system. The majority of cases are accepted as idiopathic. Calcium metabolism also plays a primary role in the synthesis/absorption of otoconia made of calcium carbonate and thus might be an etiological factor in the onset of BPPV. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role of osteoporosis and vitamin D in the etiology of BPPV by comparing BPPV patients with hospital-based controls...

Canalolabyrinthine schwannoma is a rare subtype of neuroma. Only 1 case has been described in the literature. We report the clinical case of a 51-year-old Caucasian female with Meniere's disease-like symptoms. Magnetic resonance imaging showed right VIII cranial nerve schwannoma that had different characteristics from the classical described types. The peculiar features of our case of intralabyrithine canalolabyrinthine schwannoma directed the surgeon and radiologist to tailored considerations for follow-up and therapy...

The European Academy of Otology and Neurotology (EAONO) has previously published a consensus document on the definitions and classification of cholesteatoma. It was based on the Delphi consensus methodology involving the broad EAONO membership. At the same time, the Japanese Otological Society (JOS) had been working independently on the "Classification and Staging of Cholesteatoma." EAONO and JOS then decided to collaborate and produce a joint consensus document. The EAONO/JOS joint consensus on "Definitions, Classification and Staging of Middle Ear Cholesteatoma" was formally presented at the 10th International Conference on Cholesteatoma and Ear Surgery in Edinburgh, June 5-8, 2016...

A cholesteatoma is a relatively common condition within the middle ear cavity, whereas a cholesteatoma of the squamous part of the temporal bone is an exceptionally rare entity. A case of an iatrogenic cholesteatoma located in the squamous part of the temporal bone is presented, which was revealed by an intermittent purulent discharge from an opening above the right ear 20 years after retroauricular myringoplasty. The diagnosis of an iatrogenic cholesteatoma is often made after several years of evolution, sometimes even at the stage of complications...
