Objectives: Animal data indicate that xylene induces cochlear dysfunction, characterized by the loss of outer hair cells. There is little evidence regarding xylene-induced ototoxicity in humans. The aim of the study was to investigate the possible adverse effects of xylene on the peripheral and central auditory system in humans. Design: A total of 30 medical laboratory workers who had been exposed to a mixture of xylene isomers, together with 30 nonexposed control participants matched for… Expand
