急性低音障害型感音難聴と抗利尿ホルモンについて Antidiuretic hormone in patients with acute low tone hearing loss
Serum antidiuretic hormone (ADH) levels were measured in patients with acute low tone hearing loss (ALHL) and Meniere's disease. The serum ADH level was significantly elevated in not only Meniere's disease patients but also ALHL patients. Correlations were investigated between plasma level of ADH and recurrence rate of hearing loss in patients with ALHL. Those with high plasma ADH levels tended to have frequent episodes of hearing loss. These findings suggested that disorders of ADH-control in the inner ear are part of the mechanism underlying hearing loss episodes in ALHL patients.
