A total of 62 staff members from a general hospital participated in a study about alexithymia and the five-factor model of personality, measured by the Toronto Alexithymia Scale and the NEO Five Factor Inventory, respectively, and their relationship to recognition affect. Subjects with alexithymic characteristics were less able to recognize affective states(More)
A total of 80 adults (40 normal volunteers, 40 substance abusers) participated in a study about alexithymia and five factors of personality, measured on the Toronto Alexithymia Scale and the NEO Five Factor Inventory, respectively, and their relationship to recognition of affect. The substance abusers scored the same as the age- and sex-matched normal(More)
We provide evidence for the presence of cannabinoid CB2 receptors in some cellular types of the cochlea of the adult albino rat. Cannabinoids and their receptors are increasingly being studied because of their high potential for clinical use. As a hyperspecialized portion of the peripheral nervous system, study of the expression and function of cannabinoid(More)
Introduction. The presence of a serous cyst in the tympanic membrane implies the description of a new or unpublished entity based on our knowledge whose origin may be very unlikely explained on actual embryologic and anatomic background. Clinical Case. We present a case of a 45-year-old woman with progressing right hearing loss. Physical examination(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine common reference equivalent threshold sound pressure levels (RETSPL) for the earphones used in the extended high-frequency (EHF) range, as different earphones are commercially available, but there are not RETSPLs for each model. DESIGN Hearing threshold sound pressure levels were measured up to 20 kHz for the Sennheiser HDA 200(More)

The presence of a skull base defect can lead to major complications such as cerebrospinal fluid leak, meningocele, encephalocele and meningitis. It is exceptional to find the existence of two concomitant defects in the skull base. We present the case of a patient with concomitant spontaneous defects of the anterior and middle skull base that were surgically(More)
Destruction of the membranous labyrinth can lead to sensorineural hearing loss. This is especially frequent in surgery for active otorrhea. However, destruction of the posterior labyrinth sometimes can be solved without loss of cochlear function. We report three cases of partial labyrinthectomy for intralabyrinthine cholesteatoma without functional loss.(More)
