Hearing Evaluation in Children with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.150
Synopsis: 
The study investigated the hearing functions of children with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. Tympanogram, pure tone audiogram, and transient evoked otoacoustic emission tests were performed to all subjects. According to the PTA results, mean hearing threshold values were found significantly higher in children with Type 1 diabetes compared to the control group. We recommend that Type 1 diabetic children should be kept under monitoring in terms of hearing functions.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Diabetes is a metabolic syndrome characterized by hyperglycemia deriving from a defect in insulin secretion, insulin effect, or both. Varying levels of hearing loss may occur in patients with Type 1 diabetes. The purpose of this study was to investigate the hearing functions of children with Type 1 diabetes mellitus. At the same time, we also intended to examine the relationship between hearing loss and age at onset of diabetes, duration of diabetes and HbA1c levels.

The Place of Atopy in the Aetiology of Acute Appendicitis in Children

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.005
Pages: 
287–90
Synopsis: 
The aetiology of appendicitis is multifactorial, although it is affected by several precursor factors. While there are several known factors in acute appendicitis, the cause cannot be identified in some cases. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether allergic diseases cause a disposition to appendicitis.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Appendicitis, the most common cause of abdominal pain requiring surgery in children, refers to inflammation of the vermiform appendix. The aetiology of appendicitis is multifactorial, although it is affected by several precursor factors. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether allergic diseases cause a disposition to appendicitis.

Clinical Profile of Familial Mediterranean Fever in a Paediatric Population in Eastern Turkey

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.173
Pages: 
281–6
Synopsis: 
Familial Mediterranean fever is a frequently seen chronic inflammatory disease that can lead to severe morbidity and mortality if left untreated. Severity and frequency of attacks are correlated with mutations. However, environmental factors play an important role as the clinical course can differ even in people with mutations.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Clinical and genetic findings of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) may vary in different populations. Environmental factors may also affect phenotypic features of FMF. In this study, we investigated demographic, clinical and mutational features of FMF patients treated in a single reference hospital in Turkey.
