Ear Infectionsotitis Media

Otitis media, commonly called an ear infection, is the most frequent illness of early childhood except for the common cold. Otitis media is an inflammation of the middle ear. There are two types (1) acute otitis media, an infection of the middle ear with accompanying fluid and (2) otitis media with effusion, in which the middle ear fluid is not infected. Fluid in the middle ear can persist for several weeks or months after an infection is gone. Otitis media is more common in boys, children from low-income families, those exposed to tobacco smoke, bottle-fed children (compared to breast-fed children), and children who are under two years of age and attend child care. In most cases, otitis media is accompanied by mild to moderate hearing loss (equivalent to plugging one's ears with a finger), which goes away once the fluid resolves. Some studies have shown that frequent hearing loss in children with otitis media may lead to speech, language, and school difficulties. Other studies,...

Ear Infection

A common childhood infection involving the middle ear (that cavity between the eardrum and the inner ear) known medically as otitis media. Symptoms of a middle ear infection include hearing loss and the presence of pus or fluid. The infection may be treated with antibiotics. An ear infection can cause a great deal of pain, but since it can be treated simply and effectively, there are rarely any serious, long-term complications. Serious cases may occur in some children who experience recurring ear infections. This most commonly develops within two months of birth and is characterized by persistent fluid in the middle ear and temporary hearing loss. This condition may be hereditary, and sometimes must be treated with long-term use of antibiotics or surgery. Children are very susceptible to ear infections. Nearly all children experience an ear infection before the age of six, and they are at their most vulnerable up to age two. Bacteria enter from the back of the throat via the...


Earaches can result from a buildup of wax in the ear or an infection of the outer, inner, or middle ear after a cold, for example. They can worsen as a result of barotrauma (pressure damage) after flying, or if there is catarrh in the eustachian tube (see below). Earaches may also occur as a result of infection in the outer ear following ear piercing. The body's natural mechanisms for fighting infection may be impeded if the ears are exposed to extremes of temperature. SELF-HELP Hold a covered hot-water bottle against the affected ear. CAUTION If an earache is associated with fever or discharge, see a doctor immediately. Consult a doctor about all types of earaches in children. Earache with sharp pain Acute, throbbing pain Throbbing earache Bright red ear

Documenting a Diagnosis of Food Allergy

Another common problem is the misinterpretation of a sequence of events. For example, a child with an ear infection is given an antibiotic, and 3 days later gets diarrhea, so the parents come to believe the child is allergic to the antibiotic. In fact the cause of the diarrhea is far more likely to be either an underlying viral infection, or a disturbance of the gut flora. Another example is the report of a child who is believed to be allergic to sesame seeds because of reactions occurring after eating buns coated with sesame seeds many such children are in fact not allergic to sesame seeds but are reacting to the egg glaze that has been used as an adhesive for the seed coating. Another common example is the child with asthma who coughs and wheezes after drinking a diluted orange squash drink, with the result that it is believed that the child is reacting to the yellow-orange coloring agent tartrazine. If fact such reactions are more likely to be due to sulfite preservatives in the...

Head and Neck Manifestations

Tuberculous otitis media is rare and usually represents hematogenous spread. Roughly one-half of the cases have no other evidence of present or past TB. The classic clinical picture is painless otorrhea with multiple tympanic perforations, exuberant granulation tissue, early severe hearing loss, and mastoid bone necrosis (see Chapter 25 for further discussion of otorrhea). The finding of multiple tympanic membrane perforations is most likely TB, possibly pathognomonic. Nonetheless, the diagnosis is difficult, even when tissue is available. Tuberculous otitis may be complicated by facial nerve paralysis, which is discussed in detail in Chapter 29. Response to drug therapy is excellent, and surgery usually is not required. Tuberculous Laryngitis. The pathogenesis of TB laryngitis has changed with the implementation of active chemotherapy. In the preantibiotic era, TB laryngitis was often encountered in advanced disease, along with oral and epiglottic lesions,...

Multiple Chemical Sensitivities MCS

MCS is one of the least understood co-morbidities associated with FM. MCS previously has been termed toxic injury, chemical injury syndrome, twentieth century syndrome, sick building syndrome, idiopathic environmental intolerance, and toxic-induced loss of tolerance. Due to alterations in the central nervous system, all people diagnosed with FM are more sensitive to light, noise, smell, and pain. MCS, however, is a more pronounced, debilitating chronic sensitivity to low levels of chemicals or other substances in industrialized society. The most common offenders include smoke, pesticides, plastics, synthetics, petroleum products, and paints. Symptoms are multisystem and can include runny nose, itchy eyes, scratchy throat and scalp, headaches or earaches, sleep disturbance, GI symptoms, cognitive dysfunction, difficulty breathing, and skin rash. A cause for suspicion of MCS occurs when an individual is exposed to a sensitizing agent and improves or resolves completely when the...

Methylphenidate See ritalin

Middle ear barotrauma A type of earache related to abnormal pressure changes in the air space behind the eardrum (the middle ear) that usually occurs during an airplane flight. Even in a pressurized aircraft cabin, there is a decrease in the cabin air pressure as the plane climbs as the plane descends, the air pressure increases again. It is during descent when children are most likely to experience the discomfort of middle ear barotrauma. There are several ways to help a child more effectively equalize the air pressure in the ears. Because airplane air is dry, this thickens nasal mucus, making it harder for the eustachian tube to open. A glass of a noncaffeinated beverage (water is best) for every hour of air travel will help overcome the drying effect. Careful use of nasal decon-gestant sprays before takeoff and before descent will also help open the ear and nasal passages. Medications that include antihistamines should be avoided unless the child has allergies, because they can...

Child abuse in the face of the symptoms of this disease. First symptoms usually include evidence of a primary staph infection, including impetigo, eye infection, ear infection, or sore throat with fever, malaise, or irritability. The skin of the face becomes tender, and the skin around the mouth becomes reddened, weeping, and crusting in a way that resembles potato chips. The trunk also may become involved.

Middle Ear Barotrauma

Another kind of earache can occur when a child is in a descending airplane. Called middle ear baro-trauma, it is related to abnormal pressure changes in the air space behind the eardrum. Even in a ear infection The common name for otitis media, this is an infection involving the middle ear (that cavity between the eardrum and the inner ear). A middle ear infection can produce pus or fluid and cause hearing loss. While an ear infection is painful, it is not terribly serious it is easily treated and there are not usually any long-term complications. Ear infections are most common in children because of the shortness of their eustachian tubes (the passage that connects the back of the nose to the middle ear), which makes it easier for bacteria to enter from the back of the throat. Almost all children have had at least one infection by the time they are six years old. They are most susceptible to ear infections during the first two years of life. Some children (especially babies with ear...

Mycobacterial Infections

Tuberculosis (TB, from Mycobacterium tuberculosis and or Mycobacterium bovis) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in HIV disease. It usually presents as reactivation of a pulmonary primary focus, with a risk of 7 to 10 per year for HIV-infected persons regardless of CD4 lymphocyte count, versus 10 per lifetime for HIV-negative persons. There can be involvement of the lungs, central nervous system (CNS), or other organs, with rhinosinusitis, diffuse or localized (scrofula) lymphadenopathy, skin and mucosal ulcers, chronic otitis, and laryngeal involvement. Fever, chills, night sweats, and weight loss may be the presenting symptoms of any form of tuberculosis. Hemoptysis may be a symptom of laryngeal, tracheobronchial, or pulmonary disease. The clinical presentation becomes more atypical as the immunosuppression worsens pulmonary TB presenting with essentially normal chest X ray is not uncommon in CD4 counts of less than 50 cells mm3. TB can also coexist with other...

Breast feeding and Immunity to Infection

Additionally, cytokines and other growth factors in human milk contribute to the activation of the lactating infant's immune system, rendering breastfed infants less susceptible to diarrheal diseases, respiratory infections, otitis media, and other infections and may impart long-term protection against diarrhea. Breast feeding also reduces mortality from diarrhea and respiratory infections. However, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection (and other viral infections) can be transmitted from a virus-positive mother to her child through breast milk, and breast-feeding is responsible for a significant proportion of childhood HIV infection.

Other Facial Acu Reflex Points

The five branches of the complicated facial nerve innervate the 20 known muscles of facial expression and other structures, including the tongue (Table 8-2). Injury to the facial nerve or some of its branches leads to paresis (weakness) or paralysis (loss of voluntary movement) of all or some of the facial muscles on the affected side. The injuries may be caused by chilling of the face, inflammation, middle ear infection, fractures, and tumor. Proper needling of the affected muscles helps reduce inflammation and accelerates healing in many facial symptoms, including Bell's palsy.

TABLE 1 Clinical Manifestations in Wegeners Granulomatosis

The middle ear is affected in at least one-third to one-half of all patients (9). Clinical features include otalgia, otitis media, and serous, purulent, or bloody discharge. Patients with chronic otitis media may present with conductive hearing loss due to thickened, scarred, or perforated tympanic membranes. Chronic otitis media can also lead to the development of a cholesteatoma (Fig. 3). Over time, the cholesteatoma increases in size and as a consequence can destroy the middle ear bones or the mastoid, or may erode into the inner ear and cause permanent hearing loss or dizziness. The facial nerve may be involved by the growth of the cholesteatoma, resulting in facial paralysis. Less often (

Wegeners Granulomatosis

Wegener's granulomatosis is an idiopathic vasculitis of small arteries, arterioles, and capillaries primarily affecting the upper aerodigestive tract, lungs, and kidneys. Typical presentation is in middle-aged patients with a slight male predominance. Otologic manifestations are common and range from 19 to 45 of cases (103). They include conductive hearing loss, sensorineural hearing loss, otalgia, otorrhea, and serous otitis media. Neurologic involvement is frequent with nearly half of patients demonstrating either peripheral or central neuropathy (104). Cranial nerve involvement was reported in 6.5 of patients (105). When the ear is affected by the disorder, facial nerve involvement has been estimated at 5 (103,106). Injury to the facial nerve may be from destructive granulomatous lesions involving the skull base, necrotizing vasculitis, or compressive effect due to granuloma in the middle ear (107). Pathologically, the disorder is characterized by noncaseating granulomas with...

Clinical Manifestations

Although these patients are at increased risk of infections due to pneumococcus and H. influenzae, there does not appear to be an increased risk of otitis media or sinusitis. Sickle cell patients do appear to be at increased risk for sleep-related breathing disorders. Sleep disturbance can be due to adenotonsillar hypertrophy or chronic lung disease.

Historical Cultivation And Usage

The squirting cucumber has been used as a remedy for many ailments. The uses of this plant are relatively ancient, and the method used for the preparation of the elaterium today is the same as that described in Greek times, particularly by Dioscorides (Fluckiger & Hanbury, 1879). In Arabic folk medicine (Dymock, 1972), Mahometan writers recorded the use of the elaterium as a laxative, and the juice as a treatment for otitis and as a remedy to purge the brain. The Hindus used the fresh and dried fruit juice in a similar way. In Georgian popular medicine, the plant was used as a remedy for malarial fever (Dymock, 1972). In Turkish folk medicine, the elaterium has been used in treating jaundice and headache. The powdered

Allergic rhinosinusitis

The sinuses and in uncomplicated allergic rhinosinusitis, sinus radiographs may demonstrate mucosal thickening. Some patients may appreciate nasal congestion as headache rather than as facial pressure pain. Abnormal mobility of the tympanic membrane and the presence of otitis media commonly are noted. Fatigue, perhaps due to sleep disturbances caused by nasal airflow obstruction, commonly accompanies allergic rhinosinusitis (6). Otitis Although the direct contribution of allergic mechanisms to otitis media remain controversial, it is clear that obstruction to Eustachian tube drainage and resultant dysfunction can result in symptoms of ear fullness and diminished hearing and may contribute to the severity and persistence of otitis media. Allergic rhinosinusitis is an extremely common disorder. It is generally easily treated but may be complicated by sinusitis (acute or chronic) and otitis. Additionally, as for all allergic diseases, patients must be evaluated for non-head-and-neck...

Diagnosis And Treatment The Infectious Etiologies

Both the external ear and the middle ear are susceptible to infection and both can present with otorrhea. External-ear infections (acute otitis externa) are most often caused by irritation to the ear, either from manipulation (fingers, Q-tips, etc.) or from environmental factors (water, debris, etc.). External-ear infections will present with ear pain and drainage. In bacterial otitis externa, the discharge is typically purulent. The main pathogens are Pseudomonas and Staphylococcal species, with a variable amount of anaerobes, as well (3). Typically, the ear will appear red and inflamed and be extremely sensitive to touch. In some cases, the ear can swell to the point where the tympanic membrane cannot be seen through the ear canal. Less commonly, the ear will demonstrate vesicles and pustules. Generally, this appearance is driven by pathology, since the vesicular lesions that tend to drain a clear, watery fluid, are usually viral in origin. In most...

Allergy and Dermatitis

There is clear evidence that otitis media with effusion is highly related to an allergic diathesis. When this converts to chronic draining otitis media, the allergic component would seem to still be relevant, although direct evidence is scant (17-19). Therefore, the surgeon must consider allergy evaluation, based on a patient history of other allergic diatheses, especially of the unified respiratory epithelium. Patients with chronic draining ear and allergic rhinitis, chronic rhinosinusitis, and asthma are strong candidates for allergy workup before contemplating surgical treatment. Contact allergy to chemicals used in ear drops is the most common type of dermatologic otitis externa. Hairsprays, dyes, and cosmetics can also result in an eczematoid and draining otorrhea. If the source of external canal weeping is not obvious, routine patch testing is strongly suggested (20). The autoeczematization (ID) reaction, which is an autoimmune reaction that may involve only the external...

Microbial iron acquisition

Moraxella (Branhamella) catarrhalis, a mucosal pathogen closely related to Neisseria species, is a prominent cause of otitis media in young children and lower respiratory tract infections in adults. Campagnari et al. (1994) demonstrated thatM catarrhalis obtains iron from LF and TF and also maintains growth with ferric nitrate in vitro. Furthermore, when M. catarrhalis is grown under iron-limited conditions, the bacteria express new outer membrane proteins that are not detected in membranes of organisms cultured in an iron-rich environment. These iron-repressible proteins may be important for the acquisition and utilization of iron in vivo, which could allow M. catarrhalis to colonize and survive on human mucosal surfaces.

Water contaminated 297

Swimming in polluted water may lead to an EAR INFECTION. Swimmers who inadvertently swallow water may contract a disease transmitted in polluted drinking water. This is why swimmers should avoid swimming in polluted rivers or in the ocean near large coastal resorts. In tropical countries, swimming in rivers, lakes, or ponds is not recommended because of the risk of SCHISTOSOMIASIS, a serious disease caused by a river fluke that can burrow through the swimmer's skin. SWIMMER'S ITCH is caused by a similar type of fluke. Outbreaks of swimmer's itch have occurred in the United States.

Respiratory illness

Symptoms Recurrent acute respiratory infections with offensive-smelling catarrh and breathlessness. Sinus infection is common, as is bronchitis or a cough accompanied by great fatigue. Symptoms typical of the hay fever and asthma that may respond to Psorinum are coughing, breathlessness, and wheezing, often exacerbated by exercise or cold weather. There may be an associated eye or ear infection (see below).

Scaling disorders of infancy 441

First symptoms usually include evidence of a primary staphylococcal infection, such as impetigo, conjunctivitis, ear infection, or sore throat with fever. The center of the face gets tender and the skin around the mouth becomes red, weeping, and crusting. The trunk also may be affected. In some patients the rash stabilizes, while in other cases flaccid blisters begin to develop all over the skin within 24 to 48 hours. Large areas of skin slough off, and hair or nails may be lost.

Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine PCV A new

The new PCV vaccine (Prevnar) protects against the organism Streptococcus pneumoniae (also known as pneumococcus), the leading cause of pneumonia, sinusitis, ear infection, and meningitis. It has been added to the recommended schedule of childhood immunizations. It is given to infants as a series of four inoculations administered at age two, four, six, and 12 to 15 months of age. If a child cannot begin the vaccine at two months, parents should discuss alternative schedules with their doctor.

Language Impairment Developmental

It has been estimated that approximately thirteen percent of all children have some form of language impairment (Beitchman et al. 1986a). The most common known causes of developmental language impairments are hearing loss (including intermittent hearing loss resulting from chronic otitis media), general mental retardation, neurological disorders such as lesions or epilepsy affecting the auditory processing or language areas of the brain, and motor defects affecting the oral musculature. Many other developmental disorders, such as pervasive developmental disability (including AUTISM), attention deficit disorder, central auditory processing disorder, and Down's syndrome, may include delay in language development.

Bacterial Meningitis

Pneumococcal meningitis is the second most common type of bacterial meningitis, which kills one out of every five people who contract it. Children under age two are among the most easily infected. This type of meningitis occurs sporadically during the cold and flu season but not in epidemics. This bacteria is also responsible for ear infection, pneumonia, and sinusitis. There are more than 80 types of N. meningitidis. Sometimes the illness may be preceded by a cold or an ear infection. Any sudden change in consciousness or any unusual behavior in a young child may be a sign of meningitis.

Sensory Impairments

A majority of people with Down's syndrome have a range of significant hearing impairments. Causes can be associated with the auditory nerve (sen-sorineural), stifling of the sound waves entering the auditory apparatus (conductive) or a mixture of both. The main cause of conductive loss is persistent middle-ear infection (otitis media), often with a discharge (effusion), commonly known as glue ear. In adults with Down's syndrome, this may be a predominantly recurring problem, and they will need frequent monitoring, as hearing loss could be significant (Dennis 2000). Adults with Down's syndrome have anatomically distinct narrow ear canals and this frequently causes a build-up of earwax (cerumen), which affects the hearing. In addition to obvious difficulties in daily living and education, hearing impairment should be considered within the assessment process for dementia and for mood and behaviour disorders.

Handling Emergencies

Problems such as earache, flu, colds, or a slight fever are not emergencies and can be managed by the pediatrician during regular office hours. Parents should talk to the doctor before a child gets sick and find out whom to call or see when the doctor is not available. persistent pain anywhere in the body (headache, abdominal pain, earache, sore throat, or bone pain)

Other parasomnias

Sleep bruxism is the third most common parasomnia and it can be bothersome to the bed partner. Bruxism is not a dangerous disorder. However, it can cause permanent damage to the teeth and uncomfortable jaw pain, headaches, or ear pain. Approximately 8.2 of people experience it at least once a week. Sleep apnea and anxiety disorders are the most prominent risk factors for bruxism. Bruxism could be a reflex to open the airway after an apneic or hypopneic event. Bruxism may improve with treatment of sleep apnea with continuous positive airway pressure. Sleep bruxism does not have a definite cure. The goals of treatment are to reduce pain, prevent permanent damage to the teeth, and reduce clenching as much as possible. Stress reduction, relaxation, biofeedback, hypnosis and improvement of sleep hygiene have been tried with no persistent or significant improvement. To prevent damage to the teeth, mouth guards or appliances (splints) have been used since the 1930s to treat teeth grinding,...

Secondary Syphilis

Syphilis Face Rash

The aspect of neurosyphilis most relevant to the otolaryngologist is the phenomenon of otosyphilis, historically known as luetic otitis or labyrinthitis. While otic involvement can develop at any stage of the disease, it is typically seen as a late manifestation of tertiary neurosyphilis. The pathology and symptoms seen in late otosyphilis are distinct from what is seen in early disease. While otic involvement in early syphilis is related to treponeme-induced labyrinthitis and direct neuritis of cranial nerve VIII, late otosyphilis demonstrates the obliterative endarteritis characteristic of tertiary neurosyphilis. This produces a periostitis of the otic capsule, particularly the semicircular canals. Gummatous involvement may enhance the osteitis and periostitis. Eventually, the membranous labyrinth undergoes atrophy and fibrosis. The endolymphatic sac and duct become narrowed. Middle-ear involvement can produce fibrosis of the ossicles with a resulting conductive hearing loss (10)....

Mint is also antiseptic and mildy antiviral and antifungal. It combats mouth ulcers caused by Herpes simplex virus. It is good for coughs, colds, and fever, alone or with elderberry. It also has a traditional use in treating gallstones and for hives, sinusitis and emphysema, earache and toothache, all in addition to its culinary versatility. And, who knows, as Parkinson writes (see left), mint may still be used to reduce venerous dreames and pollutions in the night, if that is what you want.

Anasarca Bladder Cancer

Infectious causes for vertigo include suppurative or toxic labyrinthitis secondary to otitis media, viral labyrinthitis or neuritis (frequently from the herpes virus family), otosyphilis, Lyme disease, and bacterial and viral meningitis. In such cases, accompanying signs of middle ear or meningeal involvement will be seen, which helps facilitate the diagnosis.

General uses

Parsley, with its mystic aura being wrapped in folk tradition, is said to increase female libido, also help in promoting menstruation and ease the difficulties of childbirth (Review of Natural Products, 1991 Tyler, 1994). Parsley juice can be used in treating hives and other allergy symptoms it also inhibits the secretion of histamine. Parsley has also been used as a liver tonic and helped in the breaking up of kidney stones. The German Commission E has approved parsley as a preventive measure and also for treatment of kidney stones. The parsley root can be used as a laxative and also helps to eliminate bloating. It can reduce weight by reducing excess water gain. The root can be used to relieve flatulence and colic, due to its carminative action. Parsley is rich in such minerals as calcium, thiamin, riboflavin, potassium, iron and vitamins such as A, C and niacin (Review of Natural Products, 1991 Gruenwald, 1998 Blumenthal, 1998 Tyler, 1994, 1998 Marczal et al., 1977).

Reducing secondary infections associated with measles A meta-analysis of six clinical trials found a 47 reduction in the incidence of croup in children with measles who were treated with 200 000 IU of vitamin A on 2 consecutive days. One study in the analysis reported a 74 reduction in the incidence of otitis media, but this was not confirmed in others. A statistically significant decrease in the duration of


Tuberculosis is caused by an infection with the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculae. In 2004, 14,517 cases of tuberculosis were reported in the United States (17). The infection is spread via respiratory droplets. Pulmonary symptoms predominate, but any organ system can be affected. Spread to the ear can be via direct extension through the nasopharynx, from hematogenous spread, or on rare occasions, via direct implantation through a preexisting tympanic perforation. Tubercular otitis media occurs in 1 of all tuberculosis cases and currently accounts for roughly 0.1 of all cases of otitis media (18-20). Presentation of tubercular otitis is variable but classically is a painless, copious otorrhea with multiple or total tympanic membrane perforations and granulation tissue. Tubercular otitis media has a higher incidence of postauricular fistulae, preauricular lymphadenopathy, and facial nerve involvement when compared to other bacterial causes of otitis media. It is important to note that...

Other Etiologies

Tuberculosis (TB), although technically infectious in etiology, can often be associated with an aural form. Although the classic description of TB otitis media is a single central perforation with profuse, painless discharge (26,27), the disorder can cause a host of otologic complications, many of which will also present with otorrhea. A more detailed discussion of TB can be found in Chapter 12.

Phenylketonuria 391

In addition to the sore throat, there may be pain when swallowing together with a slight fever, earache, and tender, swollen lymph nodes in the neck. In very severe cases the fever may be quite high, and the soft palate and throat may swell so that breathing becomes difficult. Extensive swelling and fluid buildup in the larynx can be life threatening.

Otic Diseases

Acute otitis media is a suppurative infection of the middle-ear cavity. Facial nerve involvement is considered a complication of the infection and often occurs from direct pathogen invasion of a dehiscent portion of the facial nerve course, most commonly in the horizontal segment of the facial nerve. Treatment consists of systemic antibiotic therapy against the most common pathogens Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis, and Streptococcus pneumoniae. Drainage of the infected fluid from the middle-ear space with a wide myringotomy is mandatory. If mastoiditis is present, a cortical mastoidectomy for drainage is indicated. Any sequestrum must be removed. Most physicians do not advocate facial nerve decompression in this setting. Chronic Otitis Media. Chronic otitis media is an infection lasting more than six weeks with persistent otorrhea. Facial nerve involvement in this setting requires decompression of the facial nerve in addition to long-term antibiotics....

Autoimmune Diseases

The systemic vasculitides may involve the labyrinth. Wegener's granulomatosis (Chapter 8) is a systemic vasculitis of medium and small blood vessels resulting in a triad of necrotizing granulomas of the upper airway, necrotizing glomerulonephritis, and systemic necrotizing angiitis. Chronic otitis media is the most common otologic manifestation of Wegener's, but sensorineural hearing loss will occur in a significant number of patients. Immune-mediated inner-ear disease can also be a component of polyarteritis nodosa (PAN). Postmortem temporal bone histopathologic studies on patients with PAN have demonstrated vasculitic changes within the labyrinth. Systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren's syndrome, and relapsing polychondritis have also been associated with cases of sudden hearing loss and histopathologic evidence of labyrinthitis.

Catarrh sinusitis

Symptoms Constant yellow-green catarrh that is stringy or slimy and proves difficult to expel. At night, catarrh may accumulate in the nose or run down the back of the throat. The catarrh may sometimes become dry and hard. The sinuses are inflamed, and there is sharp pain at the bridge of the nose. Glue ear may develop, marked by earache and a thick, yellow discharge from the affected ear. Catarrh that becomes blocked in the nose may cause a headache (see right), possibly with vomiting. Symptoms better For warmth for lying in a warm bed for firm pressure on the bridge of the nose for movement. Symptoms worse For cold for stooping in the morning in the spring and fall.

Other Factors

Smoking Evidence suggests that smoking cigarettes during pregnancy may triple a child's risk of developing an ear infection at birth, perhaps by interfering with the baby's immune system. Children of women who smoked during pregnancy were far more likely to suffer middle ear infections or require ear surgery by age five than were those whose mothers did not smoke. Down syndrome down syndrome is a chromosome disorder that results in mental retardation and physical deformities that also can lead to a hearing loss. Children born with this syndrome often have irregularities in the middle and inner ears and are susceptible to middle-ear infections that can lead to conductive hearing loss. Ear infections These infections are the most common cause of hearing loss in the United States. They may lead to a fluctuating hearing loss that disappears and reappears from time to time, related to allergies and the common cold. This type of hearing loss is not easy either to detect or to treat, since...

Symptoms An alternately runny or blocked nose, with smelly, thick, yellowy-green catarrh, and a reduced sense of taste and smell. There may be wet, spasmodic coughing, with yellowy-green mucus and shortness of breath, which is worse for lying on the left side. Violent coughing fits tend to occur in the evening and at night they may be triggered by lying down, and frequently cause sleep to be disturbed. Pulsatilla may be prescribed for influenza when there is fever with alternate hot and cold flashes, a lack of thirst, and possibly an earache. Symptoms better For fresh air for gentle exercise for crying for sympathy. Symptoms worse For stuffy environments for lying down.
