To the editor: In the past several months, three seminal papers have been published relating to the capsule of the bone surrounding the inner ear and the potential effect of bony dyscrasias on the hair cells enclosed. Although these papers may appear to be disparate, they are strongly linked. It is to their substance and relationship I would like to comment. Two of these papers appeared in Laryngoscope in the past 6 months1,2: Zehnder AF, Kristiansen AG, Adams JC, et al. Osteoprotegerin in the… Expand

Topics from this paper

Otosclerosis 1: the aetiopathogenesis of otosclerosis
TLDR
The majority of studies on families with otosclerosis suggest an autosomal dominant mode of inheritance with incomplete penetrance, which is characterised by alternating phases of bone resorption and formation. Expand
The Putative Role of Measles Virus in the Pathogenesis of Otosclerosis
TLDR
In the future, prospective studies based on comprehensive histopathologic, molecular biologic, and genetic analysis are necessary to get further information about the background of disease in order to clarify the role of measles in the etiopathogenesis and to find the most promising treatment option. Expand
Monaural Diplacusis with Tinnitus, Aural Fullness, Hyperacusis, and Sensorineural Hearing Loss
TLDR
The patient said the diplacusis was very distracting during his daily activities, altho ugh he had been able to overcome the response from his own voice by altering his vocal technique. Expand

TLDR
Otosclerosis is a localized disease of bone remodeling within the otic capsule of the human temporal bone, and fluorides, cytokine inhibitors, and bisphosphonates appear to hold the most promise. Expand
Etidronate for the Neurotologic Symptoms of Otosclerosis: Preliminary Study
TLDR
In this preliminary study etidronate appeared to be an effective treatment for the neurotologic symptoms of otosclerosis. Expand
Myths in neurotology.
TLDR
For many diseases the etiology of disordered function is unknown and therapy is either symptomatic or empirical, which is acceptable to many physicians, particularly if a treatment can be based on some attractive, although unproven, concept of pathogenesis. Expand

Aural cholesteatoma: role of tumor necrosis factor-alpha in bone destruction.
TLDR
TNF-alpha is one of the cytokines produced by cholesteatoma that may be an important mediator of bone destruction associated with cholESTeatoma and exerts a locally destructive effect on bone. Expand

TLDR
This review discusses the known osteoclast diseases with particular emphasis on the genetic causes and the resulting osteopetrosis phenotype, which highlight the critical importance of specific proteins or signalling pathways in osteoclasts. Expand
Role of Tumor Necrosis Factor-α in Sensorineural Hearing Loss after Bacterial Meningitis
TLDR
Tumor necrosis factor-α plays an important role in cochlear injury after bacterial meningitis and reduces postmeningitic hearing loss and co chlear injury. Expand
Cochlear Bone Erosion: Effects on Cochlear Hair Cells
TLDR
It is suggested that an ototoxic agent, involved in the process of bone erosion, acts through the bony cochlear wall in gerbils with normal middle ears. Expand
Osteoclastogenesis in fibrous dysplasia of bone: in situ and in vitro analysis of IL-6 expression.
Fibrous dysplasia of bone (FD) is caused by somatic mutations of the GNAS1 gene, which lead to constitutive activation of adenylyl cyclase and overproduction of cAMP in osteogenic cells. Previous inExpand
