864 Possible Causes for Progressive Hearing Impairment

  • Onchocerciasis

    Abstract Onchocerciasis is a widespread filarial disease in Nigeria that produces grave socio-economic effects. The great majority of the communities are mesoendemic for onchocerciasis while only few are hyperendemic especially in the savanna zone. Sexrelated infection depends on the degree of endemicity while[…][]

  • Sexually Transmitted Disease

    It does not apply to persons seeking evaluation for perceived hearing problems; these individuals should be assessed for objective hearing impairment and treated when indicated[] Assessment of Risk Increasing age is the most important risk factor for hearing loss.[] Presbycusis, a gradual, progressive decline in the ability to perceive high-frequency tones due to degeneration of hair cells in the ear, is the most common cause of hearing[]

  • Familial Progressive Vestibulocochlear Dysfunction

    Disease progressed to severe bilateral high-frequency hearing impairment and vestibular areflexia.[] Patients report feelings of vague dissiness, blurred vision, dysequilibrium in the dark, and progressive hearing impairment.[] Hearing impairment started unilaterally, predominantly in the high frequencies. He also reported tinnitus.[]

  • Metabolic Syndrome

    […] with insulin resistance, acanthosis nigricans, hyperlipidemia, childhood progressive retinal degeneration or retinitis pigmentosa and neurosensory hearing loss or deafness[] Alstrom syndrome (ALMS) is a very rare genetic autosomal recessive disease, characterized by early-onset severe abdominal obesity, impaired glucose tolerance or type 2 diabetes[]

  • Meniere's Disease

    With the progression of the duration, the hearing impairment becomes more severe and the distribution of the audiometric pattern is distinctive between stages.[] As the disease progresses hearing loss becomes permanently impaired and by that time, both ears are affected.[] Conclusion Recent studies have shown that the description of functional impairments in MD restricted to vertigo, hearing loss and tinnitus as pure symptoms do not sufficiently[]

  • Presbycusis

    Age-related hearing loss (ARHL) is characterized by gradual, progressive sensorineural hearing loss, which impairs communication, lending to clinical depression and social[] Abstract OBJECTIVE: Age-related hearing loss (ARHL) is characterized by gradual, progressive sensorineural hearing loss, which impairs communication, lending to clinical depression[] . • Patients with presbycusis develop an insidiously progressive bilateral sensorineural hearing loss, which becomes functionally problematic in late life. • The main presenting[]

  • Otitis Media

    In early and middle adult life the usual cause for progressive impairment of hearing is otosclerosis.[]

  • Congenital Deafness

  • Otitis Externa

    The invasive process may lead to skull base osteomyelitis with progressive cranial nerve palsies and can result in irreversible hearing and neurological impairment.[]
