175 Possible Causes for Deafness, Large Ears, Otalgia

  • Impacted Cerumen

    Differential diagnosis Other causes of acute deafness - eg, Eustachian tube dysfunction, foreign body. Otitis externa.[] Removal of the ceruminal plug may be largely facilitated after soaking.[] Sudden or partial hearing loss, which is usually temporary 2.[]

  • Otitis Media

    We investigated the usefulness and safety of our cochlear implantation method for two deaf patients with eosinophilic otitis media.[] Imaging demonstrated a large mass of organized tissue.[] Severe illness is defined as moderate to severe otalgia or temperature greater than 39 C, whereas nonsevere illness is defined as mild otalgia and temperature less than 39[]

  • Meniere's Disease

    Sometimes, it can present as sudden deafness with vertigo, without brainstem or cerebellar signs.[] The leading theory is that they result from increased pressure of an abnormally large amount of endolymph in the inner ear and/or from the presence of potassium in an area[] Initially, deafness maybe there only for low frequencies.[]

  • Tympanic Membrane Perforation

    […] with a tympanic membrane perforation from minor trauma the conductive hearing loss was accompanied by a significant (P 0.001) but reversible high frequency sensorineural deafness[] The mean air-bone gaps in ears with small volumes were 10 to 20 dB larger than in ears with large volumes.[] These patients had been referred to us for evaluation of chronic, mostly treatment-refractory otitis externa, which had manifested as otorrhea, otalgia, and/or pruritus.[]

  • Middle Ear Cholesteatoma

    29) True regarding Weber's test in conductive deafness is: (DNB June 08)A Inconclusive testB Heard with equal intensity in both earsC Sound louder in diseased earD Sound[] This procedure creates a large cavity that can be easily examined through the ear canal opening.[] The other patient, a 55-year-old man, was admitted to our hospital for a detailed examination because he had right otalgia and progressive headache.[]

  • Foreign Body in the Ear

    Failures and traumatic removals often cause lifelong deafness and discharging ear.[] The symptoms of having a foreign body in the ear largely depend on the size, shape, and substance involved.[] DIAGNOSIS Cerumen impaction Abrasion to ear canal Otitis Externa Tumor EVALUATION History Patient may admit to placing something in ear Parents witness placement Symptoms of otalgia[]

  • Labyrinthitis

    Abstract Bacterial meningitis is a common cause of profound deafness and, hence, a common cause of deafness in published series of patients treated with a cochlear prosthesis[] These factors raise your risk for labyrinthitis: Drinking large amounts of alcohol Fatigue History of allergies Recent viral illness, respiratory infection, or ear infection[] Aural tick usually menisfests as intolerable otalgia. The severity of pain makes the patient to seek early treatment.[]

  • Mumps

    Good outcomes have been reported regarding the use of cochlear implants for mumps deafness.[] The parotid glands are imbedded into the cheeks in front of the ear where a large set of sideburns would be.[] Tenderness of the parotid glands and otalgia often precede parotitis, which is bilateral in 95% of cases. 8 The swelling can be extensive enough to interfere with speech and[]

  • Keratosis Obturans

    Symptoms: The patient may suffer from partial hear loss. There may be severe pain in the ear. Bronchitis can be seen in the patients occasionally.[] Keratosis obturans presents as hearing loss and usually acute, severe pain secondary to the accumulation of large plugs of desquamated keratin in the ear canal.[] Classically, it is reported to present with severe otalgia, conductive deafness and global widening of the canal.[]
