The woman's ABR conduction time was normal, but her otoacoustic emissions analysis detected a very intense SOAE and DPOAE in the right ear, and an intense SOAE and no DPOAE in the left.
SOAE was found in the absence of DPOAE in patients 1, 2, and 3.
In cases 4 and 5, SOAE and DPOAE were found in apparently cofotic ("dead") ears and in ears with severe hearing loss.
In our study, our attention was drawn to the relationship between SOAE and DPOAE in patients 1,2, and 3 and the resolution of symptoms following a course of pharmacologic treatment.
* The presence of otoacoustic emissions, either SOAE or DPOAE, implies that the cochlea and outer hair cells are functionally normal.
* The presence of intense SOAE should be a common finding in patients who have an undamaged cochlear system but who have some retrocochlear or central disorder that impedes the normal inhibitory activity of the efferent auditory system.
