Anatomy Cell bodies of afferent neurons are located in the spiral ganglia in the inner ear and receive input from the cochlea. The central processes of the nerve travel through the internal auditory meatus with the facial nerve. The eighth nerve enters the medulla just at the junction of the pons and lateral to the facial nerve. Fibers of the auditory nerve bifurcate on entering the brain stem, sending a branch to both the dorsal and ventral divisions of the cochlear nucleus. From here, the path to the auditory cortex is not well understood and includes several pathways: superior olivary complex, nuclei of the lateral lemniscus, the trapezoid body, the dorsal acoustic striae, and the inferior colliculi. A small number of efferent axons are found in the eighth nerve, projecting from the superior olivary complex to the hair cells of the cochlea bilaterally. Symptoms Hearing loss predominates (slow onset or acute), possibly associated with tinnitus. Signs Damage can cause hearing loss ranging from mild to complete deafness. Pathogenesis Metabolic: Diabetes, hypothyroidism Toxic Aniline, antibiotics, benzole, carbon monoxide, chinin, cytostatic drugs, sa- luretics, salycilate. Infectious: Herpes, mumps, otitis, sarcoid Inflammatory/immune mediated: Paraneoplastic (Anti-Hu associated) (very rare) Compressive: Tumors at the cerebellopontine angle 63 Congenital: Thalidomide, rubeola embryopathy Hereditary: Congenital hearing loss Hereditary Motor-Sensory Neuropathies: (HMSN or CMT) including: CMT 1A CMT 1B Coffin-Lowry syndrome Duane’s syndrome Dilated cardiomyopathy with sensorineural hearing loss (CMD1J, CMD1K) HMSN 6 Neurofibromatosis-2 Neuroaxonal Dystrophy (late infantile) X-linked, HMSN X (Connexin 32) Trauma: Temporal bone fractures Neoplastic: Cholesteatoma, metastasis, meningeal carcinomatosis Tinnitus: Sensation of noise caused by abnormal excitation of acoustic apparatus (con- tinuous, intermittent, uni- or bilateral). Tinnitus is often associated with senso- rineural hearing loss and vertigo. Only 7% of patients with tinnitus have normal hearing. Causes: conducting apparatus, hemifacial spasm, ischemia, drugs; quinine, salycilates, streptomycin, amyl nitrate, labyrinthitis, arteriosclerosis, otosclero- sis, degeneration of cochlea. Diagnosis is made by hearing tests and auditory evoked potentials (AEP), Diagnosis genetic testing for known deafness genes, and imaging for traumatic or neoplas- tic causes.

Little Brown, Boston 64 Vestibular nerve Genetic testing NCV/EMG Laboratory Imaging Biopsy Posturometry + MRI Vestibulometry Quality Special sensory: balance information from the semicircular canals Anatomy The vestibular apparatus consists of the saccule, the utricle and the semicircular canals. The semicircular canals perceive angular movement of the head in space. The saccule and utricle perceive the position of the head with respect to gravity. Hairy cells within the apparatus synapse with peripheral processes of the primary sensory neurons, whose cell bodies constitute the vestibular ganglion. Central processes from the vestibular ganglion cells form the vestibular part of the VIII nerve.

A woman was admitted this morning in the medical intensive care unit for elective cholecystectomy acivir pills 200 mg free shipping. Before surgery purchase 200 mg acivir pills, her physical examination, including vital signs, was normal. The procedure went well, and there were no noticeable complications. However, 3 hours after returning to her room, she was noted to be unresponsive and her blood pressure was barely palpable. Her blood pressure has been refractory to intravenous fluids and pressors. You are consulted to help in the workup of suspected adrenal insufficiency. Which of the following statements regarding adrenal insufficiency is true? The most common cause of adrenal insufficiency in the United States is tuberculosis B. The critical test for the diagnosis of chronic adrenal insufficiency is the cosyntropin test C. Chronic secondary adrenal insufficiency is treated with hydrocortisone and fludrocortisone, whereas chronic primary adrenal insufficiency is treated with hydrocortisone alone 4 BOARD REVIEW D. In idiopathic or autoimmune adrenal insufficiency, CT of the abdomen shows enlarged adrenal glands Key Concept/Objective: To understand the diagnosis and treatment of adrenal insufficiency Primary adrenal insufficiency results from destruction of the adrenal cortex. The list of causes of primary adrenal insufficiency is long. In the industrialized nations, idiopathic or autoimmune adrenal destruction is the most common cause. Secondary adrenal insuffi- ciency results from disruption of pituitary secretion of ACTH. By far the most common cause of secondary adrenal insufficiency is prolonged treatment with exogenous gluco- corticoids. The acute syndrome is closely analogous to cardiogenic or septic shock and involves reduced cardiac output and a dilated and unresponsive vascular system. Symptoms include prostration, as well as all of the signs and symptoms of the shock syn- drome. With both chronic and acute syndromes, the diagnosis should be suspected on clinical grounds but requires laboratory confirmation. The critical test for the diagnosis of chronic adrenal insufficiency is the cosyntropin stimulation test. Synthetic ACTH (cosyn- tropin) is administered in a 250 µg intravenous bolus, and plasma cortisol levels are meas- ured 45 and 60 minutes afterward. Values greater than 20 µg/dl exclude adrenal insuffi- ciency as a cause of the clinical findings. Values less than 20 µg/dl suggest that adrenal compromise could be a contributing factor. In this situation, treatment with a glucocorti- coid is mandatory until the clinical situation is clarified with more precision. The differ- ential diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency requires the discrimination of primary and sec- ondary causes. The most useful test for this is measurement of the circulating plasma ACTH level. ACTH levels greater than normal define primary disease; values in the normal range or below define secondary disease. Primary chronic adrenal insufficiency is treated with 12 to 15 mg/m2 of oral hydrocortisone a day. Hydrocortisone is best given as a single daily dose with breakfast. Chronic sec- ondary adrenal insufficiency is treated in the same way as chronic primary disease but with replacement of hydrocortisone only, not aldosterone. A 32-year-old man presents to your clinic for evaluation of headaches.

Examination reveals a soft discount 200mg acivir pills fast delivery, nondistended abdomen with active bowel sounds that is mildly and diffusely tender generic acivir pills 200 mg on line. It is likely that the causative agent is an enterotoxigenic strain of E. Person-to-person transmission is a significant means of spread of the agent C. Examination of stool is unlikely to reveal blood and fecal leukocytes D. Treatment with an oral fluoroquinolone and an antimotility agent may reduce the duration of symptoms E. Disease is usually self-limited and often lasts fewer than 5 days Key Concept/Objective: To be able to recognize and appropriately treat diarrhea caused by enterotoxigenic E. The disease is spread by ingestion of food or water con- taminated with the bacteria. Because a large inoculum is required to cause disease, per- son-to-person spread of the illness is uncommon. The organism does not directly invade the intestinal mucosa or cause extensive inflammatory changes. Thus, diarrhea is typically non- bloody, and examination of stool does not reveal fecal leukocytes. Patients typically 7 INFECTIOUS DISEASE 25 present with watery diarrhea and do not have fever or severe cramps. In travelers, the disease is generally self-limited, but the course can be shortened with the use of any of several regimens of antibiotics and antimotility agents (e. Adequate fluid replacement in patients with diarrhea is the main- stay of therapy. Prevention can be accomplished most effectively in travelers by avoid- ing contaminated foods in endemic areas (including raw fruits and vegetables) and water that is not bottled. A 75-year-old man who lives alone is brought to the emergency department by his daughter because of diarrhea and lethargy. He was well until 4 days ago, when he developed severe abdominal cramps and watery diarrhea. The diarrhea persisted despite the use of loperamide and subsequently became bloody. His daughter reports that over the past 24 hours, he has produced little urine and has become progres- sively lethargic and intermittently confused. On examination, the patient appears dehydrated and is ori- ented to person and place only. The abdomen is soft but diffusely tender to palpation. Results of labo- ratory studies include the following: hematocrit, 23%; platelet count, 55,000/µl; white blood cell count, 15,000/µl; blood urea nitrogen, 60 mg/dl; serum creatinine, 3. Examination of the stool reveals blood and numerous fecal leukocytes; review of the peripheral blood smear demonstrates schistocytes. Systemic effects are the result of bacterial production of a toxin that damages endothelial cells B. The pathogenic organism causes disease in outbreaks associated with contaminated food, including undercooked beef C. A relatively small inoculum is required to cause disease, increasing the likelihood of person-to-person spread in facilities such as day care centers and nursing homes D. Early treatment with antibiotics and antimotility agents has been shown to reduce the rate of the development of life-threatening complications, especially in young children and the elderly E. Diagnosis can be established in most cases by stool culture using specific indicator plates Key Concept/Objective: To understand disease caused by enterohemorrhagic E. Serotype O157:H7 is the most important serotype of this group of E. Consumption of undercooked beef has been most commonly associated with recent outbreaks of dis- ease. Person-to-person spread is a significant problem, resulting in large outbreaks in settings such as day care centers, nursing homes, swimming pools, and water parks.
