Martin Luther achieved great success in religious reformation, though he was said to have suffered from many kinds of diseases during his lifetime. Unfortunately, however, his medical history has never been reported in Japan. Since the second half of his thirties, he was suffering from severe constipation, causing hemorrhoids and anal prolapse. At the beginning of his forties he had vertigo, tinnitis and headaches, which were the signs of chronic purlent otitis media and ended in left otorrhea and pyorrhea of the left mastoiditis...

The objective of the study was to evaluate efficacy and tolerance of tanakan during treatment of neurosensory hearing loss and subjective tinnitis supposedly of vascular etiology. The secondary purpose was to analyse late results of 3 month courses of therapy and changes in the clinical course of the disease during treatment and within 6 months after its termination. Tanakan was first given at a dose of 40 mg thrice daily for 90 days. Results of the treatment were estimated on days 90, 180, and 240. The second course (40 mg thrice daily for 90 days) was initiated 180 days after the end of the first one...

Hypoxia/ischemia may play an important role in the pathogenesis of sensorineural tinnitus due to the characteristics of the cochlear blood supply. In addition, hypoxia modulates molecular processes both in the acute and chronic forms of tinnitus. Transcription factor HIF-1 (hypoxia-inducible factor) may play a key role in the cells' adaptation to hypoxia and ischemia, while under hypoxic/ischemic conditions, HIF-1 induces changes in the gene expression which may contribute to the remodeling of particular structures within the cochlea...

A 62-year-old woman was evaluated for tinnitis and headache. Magnetic resonance imaging and angiography revealed the coexistence of a tentorial tumor encroaching the junction of the right transverse-sigmoid sinuses, and dural arteriovenous fistulous malformation (AVFM) of the right transverse sinus. AVFM was not manipulated at all during the surgery. The pathology was fibroblastic meningioma. Postoperatively, the dural AVFM completely disappeared on follow-up angiography. The fistulas were occluded also after surgery, even though there was no manipulation of the AVFM...

Lyme disease is an important consideration in the differential diagnosis of patients seen by the otolaryngologist. Facial paralysis is the most common sign. The otolaryngologist may also see patients with temporal mandibular joint pain, cervical lymphadenopathy, facial pain, headache, tinnitis, vertigo, decreased hearing, otalgia and sore throat. The incidence is increasing and known to be endemic to certain areas of the United States and abroad. This paper reviews the various ways Lyme disease appears to the otolaryngologist...

A double blind study compared piroxicam, 20 mg OD to enteric coated acetylsalicylic acid (EC ASA), 3.9-5.2 g daily in divided doses, in 145 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Both drugs improved the signs and symptoms of RA. Patients showed significantly better compliance with a once daily dosage regimen. Gastrointestinal side effect profiles were similar. The EC ASA group showed a higher frequency of tinnitis and more dropouts, while there were more skin reactions in the piroxicam group. Decreased hemoglobin and hematocrit values were more prevalent in the piroxicam group...

A total of 31 patients with malignant bone and soft tissue tumors were evaluated for toxic effects after receiving cisplatin (104 courses) at doses of 2.0-3.0 mg/kg with aggressive hydration. Nausea was common and in 86% of cisplatin courses severe vomiting was observed. Nephrotoxicity was observed in less than 10% of all courses but ototoxicity, especially tinnitis, developed in 5 of 6 patients whose total doses of cisplatin were over 500mg, and one of them showed hearing disorder in the upper frequency above 5,000 Hz...

Two rheologically active and 8 vasoactive and metabolically active substances were compared in eight independent studies, some of which were randomised and double blind, on 400 patients who had suffered acute acoustic trauma. The control group was given saline. Spontaneous recovery was excluded as far as possible. The following substances were tested: Dextran 40, hydroxyethyl starch 40/0.5, naftidrofurylhydrogenoxalate, Vinpocetin, betahistine, pentoxifylline, flunaricine, Regeneresen AU 4 and 0.9% saline. All groups showed superior results to the control group in both long-term and short-term tests with respect to hearing gain and tinnitis improvement...

Although tinnitus is usually a benign finding, it can have an extremely adverse effect on a patient's life. Tinnitis is a symptom that can have many different etiologies. This communication deals with the etiology, diagnosis, and available treatment of the condition.

Eighty four patients requiring treatment with Gentamycin were selected from Otorhinolaryngology outpatient and those admitted to the hospital. Patients suffering from hepatic or renal disorders, pregnant women and children were excluded from the study. Seventy three were administered gentamycin 40 mg BD intramuscularly for 7-10 days and in 11 the drug was applied topically as ear drops for 6-12 weeks. Adverse reactions were observed in 9 (13.3%) and 11 (100%) patients given the drug parenterally and topically respectively...

In an early case of cochlear hydrops, the symptoms of a mild pressure sensation or fullness in the involved ear may be mistaken for a blocked eustachian tube. More severe cases demonstrate a true sensori-neutral hearing loss that fluctuates. Tinnitis is usually present during the attack and will often subside when the hearing returns to normal. The neurotologic evaluation is negative and attempts to establish an etiology are seldom fruitful. The treatment is usually medical, and empirically, these individuals are treated with diuretics, low salt diet, and vasodilators...

A 35 year-old Japanese female complained of a right-sided pulsation tinnitis, hearing disturbance, and facial weakness. Extensive radiographic studies including angiograms and retrograde juglar venography provided a diagnosis and localization of a tumor. Radical mastoidectomy was performed and a red grape-like glomus juglare tumor along the facial nerve was extirpated as there was a profuse hemorrhage from the tumor mass. Cryosurgery was then performed. Complete surgical removal is possible when the tumor is small, however, when the tumor involves the middle ear and mastoid area, complete extirpation cannot always be done...
