Author(s): Matteson, E. L. Source: American Academy of Audiology. Reston, VA. 14(4):225-29. May/June 2003. Availability: Available from the American Academy of Audiology. Publications, 11730 Plaza America Drive, Suite 300, Reston, VA 20190. Voice: 800-AAA-2336; 703-790-8466. Fax: 703-790-8631. Web site: http://www.audiology.org/. Language: English. Abstract: The authors of this paper on autoimmune inner ear disease (AIED) define the condition as a clinical syndrome of uncertain pathogenesis associated with bilateral rapidly progressive hearing loss which may be associated with vestibular symptoms. The authors' position is that autoimmunity is given as the pathogenesis of this sort of hearing loss, although the mechanism of the disease is poorly understood. In the article the authors describe the clinical aspects of the disease, histopathology, immunologic indicators, the types of presentation: from both the audiologic and vestibular points of view, clinical trials for treatment, and follow-up. One major finding is that many of the patients respond favorably to the treatment Methotrexate. References are included. Subject Category: Hearing. Descriptors: Autoimmune Inner Ear Disease.
