Psoriasis is a systemic inflammatory disorder associated with many other chronic and progressive diseases. There are few studies on the association of psoriasis with alterations in auditory function. A clinical and instrumental pilot study of auditory function was performed with 77 psoriatic patients and 77 age- and sex-matched healthy controls. The main results were: (i) hearing loss, mostly of sensorineural type, was significantly more frequent in patients than in controls; (ii) conductive and mixed hearing loss were more frequent in arthropathic than in non-arthropathic psoriatic patients; (iii) duration of psoriasis > 10 years or smoking were associated with higher frequency of hearing loss; (iv) psoriasis was more severe in patients with hearing loss than in those without hearing loss...

We have developed a new clinical classification of acute otitis media (AOM) based on the previously proposed classifications of V.T. Palchun with co-workers (1997) and J. Jeger (1970) in which the letter near the stage of the pathological process roughly corresponds to the type of the tympanogram as follows: stage I (acute tubootitis): A, B, C; stage II (acute catarrhal otitis media): A, B, C; stage III (acute purulent otitis media, perforation stage); stage IV (acute purulent otitis media, post-perforation stage); stage V (resolution of otitis media): A - convalescence or recovery, B1 - exudate present in the tympanic cavity; B2 - persisting perforation; C - block of the auditory tube, O - the development of complications...
