PURPOSE Hearing loss can lead to a number of disabilities and can reduce quality of life. Noise-induced hearing losses have become more common among adolescents due to increased exposure to personal music players. We, therefore, investigated the use of personal music player among Korean adolescents and the relationship between hearing threshold and usage(More)
Metastatic temporal bone tumors are rare diseases and they are usually clinically asymptomatic, so it is difficult to diagnose them. Breasts are the most common sites of temporal bone metastasis. Tumors of lung, kidney, gastrointestinal tract, prostate gland, larynx and thyroid gland are the other sites. The pathogenesis of the temporal bone is most(More)
The role of flocculus in vestibular compensation is still a controversial issue. Calbindin regulates intracellular signaling and has been reported to be a reliable marker of Purkinje cell. Expression of calbindin in flocculus was examined using immunohistochemistry following unilateral labyrinthectomy (UL) in rats. Both the staining intensity and number of(More)
OBJECTIVES Otitis media (OM) is an infectious disease that affects all age brackets. Aural discharge is a typical symptom, occurring in all subtypes of OM. We have compared the identity and antibiotic sensitivity of bacteria isolated from aural discharges of adults and children with various types of OM, including acute OM (AOM), OM with effusion (OME),(More)
Congenital cholesteatomas of mastoid origin are extremely rare. We reported one in 2007 and experienced an additional case. A male presented with a 5-month history of right-sided ear discharge. Computed tomography of the temporal bone showed a soft tissue density occupying the mastoid tip. At surgery, the cholesteatoma sac was completely isolated from the(More)
OBJECTIVES Although many studies have assessed sudden deafness in adults, sudden deafness has not been evaluated in children. We therefore evaluated the differences in sudden deafness between children and adults. METHODS We compared clinical manifestations, including gender, audiogram pattern of initial hearing loss, and recovery rate after treatment in(More)
BACKGROUND Hearing loss can lead to a number of disabilities, subsequently reducing the quality of life. In general, hearing thresholds of adolescents are better than adults and the elderly. However, occasionally, adolescents acquire hearing loss for a number of reasons. In this study, our goal was to estimate the prevalence of hearing loss in the Korean(More)
Stapes fractures without other ossicle problems are rare and ossicle problems due to explosion pressure are also rare. We describe a very rare case of stapes anterior crural fracture resulting from a land mine explosion. As this case suggests, a close examination of the ossicles is necessary during an exploration tympanotomy.
Following unilateral vestibular deafferentation, many of the oculomotor and postural symptoms, such as spontaneous ocular nystagmus and head tilt, gradually abate over time in a process known as 'vestibular compensation'. Although many experimental studies have indicated a role for the cerebellum during vestibular compensation, the effects of unilateral(More)
The subjective visual vertical (SVV) is a useful tool to evaluate clinical manifestations of vestibular loss, but there have been normal variations of the SVV within 1 degrees -3 degrees , and over time, the absolute deviated degrees of SVV tilts decreases. We investigated SVV values in patients with vestibular neuritis (VN) during eccentric rotation, the(More)
