BACKGROUND: Auditory neural myelination (ANM) as evaluated by auditory brainstem evoked response (ABR) during the neonatal period has been used as a surrogate outcome for long-term neurodevelopment. The validity of ANM as a surrogate outcome for long-term neurodevelopment has not been well studied. AIM: Evaluate the association of ABR I-V interpeak latency (IPL), an index of ANM, at 35 week postmenstrual age (PMA) with language outcome at 3 years of age. DESIGN: Prospective study...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to study the pattern of deafness among boys of Al-Amal Institutes for the Deaf in Abha, the capital city of Asir Region, Southwestern Saudi Arabia. METHODS: All students (n=155) were subjected to full otoscopic and audiometric examinations, and the type and degree of deafness were graded according to the recommendation of the British Society of Audiology. Computerized tomography scan was carried out to exclude congenital inner ear deformity, and specific Igm antibodies assay for TORCHS was carried out when the history of intrauterine infection was positive or suggestive...

The objective of this work was to evaluate the prevalence of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) and distribution of the main risk factors associated to it focusing on their role in the development of deafness and their interaction. We performed a global audiological assessment (through TEOAE, tympanometry and ABR) in 508 infants at risk studying the main risk factors reported by Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (2007). Fifty-one infants (10.03 %) were diagnosed with SNHL (45 bilateral and 6 unilateral) with a mean hearing threshold of 87...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate independent etiologic factor associated with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) in newborn at risk; to study the role of their interaction especially in NICU infants who present often multiple risk factors for SNHL. METHODS: The main risk factors for SNHL reported by JCIH 2007 were evaluated on 508 infant at risk ranging from 4 to 20 weeks of life, transferred to the Audiology Department of Palermo from the main births centers of Western Sicily...

OBJECTIVES: This article presents the results of newborn hearing screenings on infants at risk of hearing impairment at the French University Hospital of Besançon from 2001 to 2007. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All newborns at risk of hearing impairment were tested according to the method recommended by the Joint Committee on Infant Hearing (JCIH): a two-step automated oto-acoustic emissions (AOAE) program, completed by an auditory brainstem response (ABR) for the positive diagnosis of hearing impairment...

Rubella is a major cause of birth defects among the TORCH group of agents causing congenital anomalies. Almost all the symptomatic infected infants have long-term neurological sequelae & many asymptomatic infants also develop deafness or psychomotor retardation later in life. In India need for rubella prevention & control is being recognized. Before formulating any kind of rubella vaccination policies, data on the burden of disease is important. Hence the prevalence of rubella in children and their transmission was evaluated...

Clinical and audiological studies of 234 Saudi patients from the central area of Saudi Arabia with progressive sensorineural hearing loss were carried out in Riyadh. One hundred and sixty-four came from 38 families, i.e. 70% of the total and 30% were sporadic cases. Consanguinity was found in 80.8%. Their hearing loss was characterized as being bilateral sensorineural, starting at 1 kHz frequency and gradually sloping the pure tone audiogram to severe and profound hearing loss at 8 kHz. Special tests for recruitment indicate hair cell lesions...

The original TORCH complex described clinically similar congenital infections caused by Toxoplasma gondii, rubella virus, cytomegalovirus, and herpes simplex virus, types 1 and 2. Cutaneous manifestations, including petechiae, purpura, jaundice, and dermal erythropoiesis, are commonly seen in toxoplasmosis, rubella, and cytomegalovirus infections. In herpes simplex virus infections, 80% of symptomatic infants show single or grouped cutaneous vesicles, oral ulcers, or conjunctivitis. Extracutaneous signs and symptoms are variable and can be severe...

Among the TORCH agents, the occurrence of rubella and human T-lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) in Japan were studied. Rubella epidemics occurred throughout Japan from 1964 to 1969 and from 1975 to 1979. Low prevalences of CRS were observed in northeastern Japan, and high prevalences in southwestern Japan, with the highest in Okinawa. These conditions could be explained by the lower rate of rubella H1 antibody in the female population of southwestern Japan. Time of maternal rubella was in the gestational age interval from 26 to 57 days for cataract, from 25 to 62 days for heart disease and from 16 to 131 days for deafness...
