  • The diagnosis of obscure auditory dysfunction (OAD) has been an elusive one, based primarily upon reports of poor speech perception in noise by the patient. Basic audiometric testing reveals hearing within normal threshold limits and it is thought that there may, in part be some subtle psychoacoustic and/or central auditory deficits causing this phenomenon. The use of high-frequency audiometry (HFA) as a test of subclinical cochlear damage has been well documented, especially to monitor the… CONTINUE READING
