973 Possible Causes for Hearing Impairment, Increased Susceptibility to Infections

  • Upper Respiratory Infection

    […] to infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The presence of upper respiratory infection is an additional factor increasing the susceptibility of small children to hypoxemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Asthma in children is associated with an increased risk of S. pyogenes upper respiratory infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lethal Ataxia with Deafness and Optic Atrophy

    susceptibility to infections / recurrent infections - Intellectual deficit / mental / psychomotor retardation / learning disability - Nerve conduction abnormality - Optic[csbg.cnb.csic.es] impairment, and the other (III:8) had hearing loss and seizures.[doi.org] Carrier females can show late-onset (age 20 years) hearing impairment and other findings. Diagnosis/testing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Otitis Media

    Whilst this is often accompanied by a feeling of relief as the pressure inside the ear is released, this can lead to excessive draining of the ear and increases susceptibility[news-medical.net] Children can be impacted mainly with hearing impairment and/or co-occurring recurrent acute otitis media (AOM) thus requiring treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] algorithm for profiling hearing impairment in children with OME.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Common Variable Immunodeficiency

    susceptibility to infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient had a history of increased susceptibility to infections and autoimmune phenomena.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Areas covered: The affected patients are characterized by increased susceptibility to infections and low levels of serum immunoglobulin.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Toxoplasmosis

    Nevertheless, mice lacking CXCR2 fail to recruit neutrophils during T. gondii infection and display an increase in susceptibility, albeit to a lesser extent than removal of[doi.org] Nevertheless, mathematical models describing a similar prey–predator–parasite system demonstrate that even a small selective increase in susceptibility of an infected prey[doi.org] Del Rio L, Bennouna S, Salinas J, Denkers EY (2001) CXCR2 deficiency confers impaired neutrophil recruitment and increased susceptibility during Toxoplasma gondii infection[doi.org]

  • Thrombocytopenia

    susceptibility to opportunistic infections and decreased cancer immunosurveillance. [8] Immunosuppressants may be prescribed when a normal immune response is undesirable,[en.wikipedia.org] The unwanted effect in non-deliberate immunosuppression is immunodeficiency that results in increased susceptibility to pathogens such as bacteria, and viruses [1] Immunodeficiency[en.wikipedia.org] […] the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1990 for work on immunosuppression. [7] Immunosuppressive drugs have the potential to cause immunodeficiency, which can cause increased[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Acute Otitis Externa

    (UTIs) also increase an individual’s susceptibility to acute pyelonephritis.[ada.com] impairment Antibiotics and ENT referral are not routinely required for OME, as the majority of cases occur after an episode of AOM and resolve spontaneously with no long[rch.org.au] Symptoms include ear discomfort, itchiness, discharge and impaired hearing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dementia

    susceptibility to infections, such as pneumonia People with dementia will progress through these stages at different speeds and with differing symptoms.[healthline.com] KEYWORDS: Alzheimer’s disease; Cognitive impairment; Deafness; Dementia; Hearing impairment; Hearing loss; Systematic review[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Individuals with Le(a b ) blood group have increased susceptibility to symptomatic Vibrio cholerae O1 infection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningitis

    Some children who have an increased susceptibility to serious infections (these high-risk children include those with abnormally functioning immune systems, sickle cell disease[healthychildren.org] Hearing impairment after bacterial meningitis: a review.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There was a possible adverse effect of increasing susceptibility to infection with more pathogenic organisms.[doi.org]

  • Skull Fracture

    There was a possible adverse effect of increased susceptibility to infection with more pathogenic (disease-causing) organisms.[cochrane.org] Hearing impairment may be associated with basilar SF and may result from transient middle ear hemorrhages and inflammation or from nerve damage, in which case deafness would[symptoma.com] Visual impairment. Neck stiffness. Irritability. Photophobia and phonophobia. Hypotension. Drowsiness. Impaired sense of smell, taste or hearing. Loss of consciousness.[epainassist.com]
