ABSTRACT Glomus tympanicum and Glomus jugulare: Both commonly present as a middle ear mass resulting in tinnitus (in 80%) and hearing loss (in 60%). About 85% of paragangliomas develop in the abdomen; only 12% develop in the chest and 3% in the head and neck region (the latter are the most likely to be symptomatic). […]

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

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 […]

Neurocysticercosis (NCC). Report a Case

Abstract NCC is recognized as a common cause of neurologic disease in developing countries, and it is also seen in developed countries, including the United States. NCC is a chronic disease associated with substantial morbidity and high social and economic costs. A minimal estimate of annual treatment costs in the United States (a country in […]

Hygroma. Report, a Case

Cystic hygroma was first described in 1828 and referred to as a “moist tumor.Today, this benign developmental tumor is recognized as a lymphatic malformation (also known as a lymphangioma).Cystic hygroma is a benign lymphatic malformation representing 5% to 6% of all benign tumors and 1% of all tumors (benign and malignant). Most (90%) cystic hygromas […]

Tinnitus: A New Model of Pharmacological Therapy

Tinnitus Therapy schedule developed by us, we based on the schema of the auditory via and on the cortico -striatum- thalamus -cortical control system. The selected medicine or neurotransmitter will be directed to regulating the neuronal hyperactivity or hypoactivity functions, depending on the topographical location of tinnitus. It is impossible to treat tinnitus by a […]

Tinnitus of the hypersensitive ear or the exogenous tinnitus

Tinnitus belongs to the most important symptoms in neurootology besides of vertigo, nausea and hearing loss. In most of the cases still the origin of the tinnitus is not yet explainable. It is well known that tinnitus may arise in any part of the hearing pathways, i.e., the cochlea receptor as well the temporal lobe […]

Statoacoustic failures with respect to Neurootometric measurements occurring in Tinnitus Cases

Besides of vertigo, nausea and hearing loss tinnitus belongs to the most important symptoms in neurootology. We have to discriminate between an endogenous i.e. a maskable tinnitus, from an exogenous tinnitus, which is nonmaskable. However, both are spontaneous, subjective and annoying phenomena, which frequently still are listed amongst other diseases of the ear. For this […]

Tinnitus due to cochlear irritations

Degenerations, chemical, as well as physical hazards amongst external sources lead to untoward changes in inner ear functions, which frequently go together with the subjective sign of tinnitus. Chemical hazards can arise due to the presence of toxic or irritating gases, vapours from paints, lubricants or chemical solvents, gluing and sticking materials, and especially from […]

Tinnitus of cortical cerebral origin

Amongst our neurootological patients we frequently find multisensorial syndromes, for instance with combinations between tinnitus, hearing impairment, vertigo and nausea. The statistical results are exhibiting that tinnitus is bound to a multifactorial disease background. The topodiagnostic analysis of the stato-acoustic data shows that there exists significantly more central than peripheral pathology. With electro-cochleography, brainstem audiometry […]

Abnormal Vestibular Dynamics Reflecting Aberrations

 By comparing the per-rotatory and the caloric tests, we can get important information regarding the stato-acoustic system.  Considering the different behaviour of the stato-acoustic system under the influences of the changing dynamics of the shape and the intensity of the supraliminal vestibular stimuli in tinnitus patients, we are trying to find a correlation between the […]
