Release of intracranial pressure leads to improvement of otoacoustic emissions--a case report of a Kenyan child with complicated tuberculous meningitis.

Abstract

Intracranial pressure usually is measured with invasive techniques. The usability of transient evoked otoacoustic emissions as non-invasive approach has been evaluated only once by Frank et al. This article presents the case of a Kenyan boy with tuberculous meningitis and an active malresorptive hydrocephalus. At this stage, the otoacoustic emissions did… (More)
