INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVE To determine the clinical and audiological behaviour per age group in Sjögren's Syndrome (SS), considering that it is the second most frequent autoimmune rheumatic disease. MATERIAL AND METHOD The study included 29 patients with SS with clinical history and audiological studies. The design was prospective, descriptive and(More)
INTRODUCTION In this study, a new dichotic digit test in Spanish (NDDTS) was applied in order to identify auditory laterality. We also evaluated body laterality and spatial location using the Subirana test. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Both the dichotic test and the Subirana test for body laterality and spatial location were applied in a group of 40 children with(More)
OBJECTIVE We hypothesized that if the right hemisphere auditory processing abilities can be altered in children with developmental dyslexia (DD), we can detect dysfunction using specific tests. METHOD We performed an analytical comparative cross-sectional study. We studied 20 right-handed children with DD and 20 healthy right-handed control subjects (CS).(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Hyperhomocysteinemia as a risk factor for hearing impairment, neuronal damage and cognitive impairment in elderly patients is controversial and is limited by the small number of studies. The aim of this work was determine if elderly patients detected with hyperhomocysteinemia have an increased risk of developing abnormalities in(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify and describe peripheral and central audiological abnormalities of patients with Vogt Koyanagi Harada syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS Prospective, cross-sectional, observational, descriptive study. Vogt Koyanagi Harada patients referred from an ophthalmologic centre were assessed for signs and symptoms of auditory pathology.(More)
OBJECTIVE Dyslexia is the difficulty of children in learning to read and write as results of neurological deficiencies. The objective was to test the Phonological awareness (PA) and Sinusoidal amplitude modulation (SAM) threshold in children with Phonological dyslexia (PD). METHODS We performed a case-control, analytic, cross sectional study. We studied(More)
AIMS In children with articulatory defects it is important to evaluate the central auditory level. We compared the results of the interwave intervals of brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) at 80 dB SPL (sound pressure level) and the latencies of the waves of long latency auditory evoked potentials (LLAEP) (vertex) in 5-year-old children with(More)
