Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and Tinnitus: The ethiopatogenic mechanism , studied with Brain Electric Tomography (LORETA)

Abstract

An statistical evaluation of 1480 tinnitus patients under study, (Bergmann-Bertora) quantitatively before and after treatment, allows us to state that 9% of cases did not show any improvement in symptoms or reasons on which consultation has been originated.
In most cases, they are patients with personality disorders especially obsessive-compulsive type disorders (OCD) and other pathologies described as generalized anxiety disorders.
The 57 patients with OCD-tinnitus were studied through S-Low Resolution Brain Electric Tomography (S-LORETA), and their results were compared vs. 500 normal patients and 200 tinnitus patients without psychiatric disorders.
The statistical results show that there is a pattern of hypoactivity in the anterior cingulate limbic lobe and the superior frontal gyrus, which is not observed in the remaining patients with tinnitus and that this hypoactivity is not modified with the application of an auditory stimulus.
