OBJECTIVE To identify patients with primary auditory neuropathies whose cochlear potentials to a 100 microsec click persist after click cessation and simulate synchronous auditory brain stem responses (ABRs) at high intensities. DESIGN ABRs to condensation and rarefaction clicks, as well as Maximum Length Sequence ABRs and one transtympanic(More)
Function of the olivocochlear reflex, measured by suppression of transient evoked otoacoustic emissions, is assessed in nine patients with bilateral auditory neuropathy/dys-synchrony and compared to matched control subjects with normal auditory function. TEOAEs were acquired using 65 dB peak sound pressure linear clicks with and without the presence of(More)
A 55-year-old woman had progressive weakness, weight loss, night sweats, fever, right-sided facial weakness, and hepatomegaly. Reticulonodular infiltrates were seen on chest x-ray film and a central filling defect was noted on liver scan. Study of the peripheral blood was noted on liver scan. Study of the peripheral blood revealed pancytopenia and(More)
The results of bacterial cultures from transtracheal aspiration and from aspirations obtained by a new telescoping plugged catheter were compared in specimens taken from 13 patients with suspected anaerobic infections of the lower respiratory tract. When all bacterial isolates (potential aerobic pathogens, aerobic nonpathogens, and anaerobes) were counted(More)
In a multicenter study of 90 patients treated with ciprofloxacin (mean daily dosage, 936 mg per day; mean duration of treatment, 9.7 days) for a variety of infections, 42 were microbiologically proven. For one case the outcome of therapy was unknown. Of the 41 reported outcomes bacteriologic cure resulted in 92.7%, improvement in 7.3% of cases. Clinical(More)
