一側性難聴をもつ私の体験を述べ、本邦では検討が少ない日常生活や学業上の不自由さ、心理的問題などについて考察する。<BR>患耳側からの聞き取りの困難さにより、私は学会発表時に時にマイクの音が聞き取れないことや、患耳側の方と話すときに不便さを感じ座る席に気を遣うこと、話が聞き取れずに時に会話に入るのを諦めることがある。これらは社会人には支障となるもので、心理的負担となり、何らかの支援を必要としている例があるかもしれない。<BR>両親からの支援や学校の配慮により私は特に問題がなく幼少期や小学期を過ごせたが、大学卒業時に手術を受けることは両親に反対された。家族から患者へ正しい情報が伝わるとは限らず、また、先天的な疾患をもつ患者は治療によって何が改善するのか十分認識できていない可能性もあるので、しかるべき時期に正しい情報を提供してあげる必要があると思われた。

Little was known about difficulties of life and psychological problems in cases with unilateral hearing loss in Japan. Herein I report about my experiments and my parents' care in the disease. <BR>I have right unilateral hearing loss due to right external ear canal obstruction combined with right microtia. In my childhood, my parents talked to me and show me TV programs for improving the delayed acquisition. When I was two years old, they felt regret for taking me to swim in the sea because I had left otitis media, therefore, they forbid me to swim. They asked my school teachers to let me sit at the right front side of classrooms, and not to hit me on the right normal hearing ear. In my university age, I felt the difficulties in the clinical medical practices, small meetings and parties because I could not listen from the right side in a small voice. In the clinical medical practice of otolaryngology, hearing examination and CT revealed that I had severe conduction hearing loss, and the professor recommended an operation. Despite of my parents' objection, I had the operation, resulting in improvement of hearing loss, earfulness and shoulder stiffness. At the present I have right moderate hearing loss and some difficulties; 1) I sometimes do not listen to the microphone sounds in giving my presentation. 2) It is hard to talk with a diseased side person in the small meeting and party, and considering the order of seating place. 3) I sometimes give up listening to the conversation.<BR>Patients with congenital diseases may not know correct information about their disease although having the difficulties in their social life. Therefore, they need to be informed about the disease at the proper time.
