Recurrent episodes of oscillopsia, rotational vertigo, and postural imbalance were elicited and modulated by changing the horizontal head positions of a patient with an arachnoid cyst in the right cerebellopontine angle that distorted the vestibulocochlear nerve. Oculomotor analysis revealed two different types of attacks depending on the particular head(More)
A mentally retarded 8-year-old boy with a de novo partial monosomy for the short arm of the No. 8 chromosome is described. Based on G-banding analysis, the patient's karyotype was identified in lymphocytes and skin fibroblasts as 46,XY,del(8) (pter leads to p21:). No chromosomal abnormalities were found in the phenotypically normal mother, father and sister(More)
Vestibular neuritis is a common cause of partial unilateral vestibular paralysis, which usually spares posterior semicircular canal function. The cause is assumed to be a viral reactivation of latent herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) in human vestibular ganglia. The existence of an anastomosis between the intermediate nerve and the superior vestibular(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the pathological significance of antibodies against cornea and inner ear tissue in the development of audiovestibular and ocular symptoms in patients with Cogan's syndrome (CS). We analysed the serum of 5 CS patients for binding of IgM and IgG to fresh cryosections of rat labyrinth (semicircular canals, ampulla,(More)
We have investigated the modulation of prostatic acid phosphatase expression in the human prostatic cancer cell line LNCaP in response to the natural androgens testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, the female sex steroid estradiol and the synthetic androgen R1881 (methyltrienolone). Testosterone and dihydrotestosterone at 1 microgram/ml enhance the acid(More)
Using gene-specific synthetic oligonucleotides the expression and regulation of kallikrein-like genes in the human prostatic cancer cell line LNCaP were studied. Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and human glandular kallikrein (hGK-1) together constitute a subfamily of serine proteases exclusively produced in the human prostate. RNA analysis revealed that(More)
Viral reactivation in temporal ganglia is the suspected cause of Bell's palsy, vestibular neuritis and sudden hearing loss. Since the distribution of latent herpes simplex type 1 (HSV-1) in geniculate, vestibular and spiral ganglia of individual human temporal bones could have implications for the explanation of isolated as well as combined disorders of(More)
