    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the vestibular function of motion sickness. VNG, which tests the vestibular function of horizontal semicircular canal, and CPT, which tests vestibulospinal reflex and judge proprioceptive, visual and vestibular status, were performed in 30 motion sickness patients and 20 healthy volunteers (control group). Graybiel score was recorded at the same time. Two groups' Graybiel score (12.67 +/- 11.78 vs 2.10 +/- 6.23; rank test P<0.05), caloric test labyrinth value [(19.02 +/- 8.59) degrees/s vs (13.58 +/- 5.25) degrees/s; t test P<0.05], caloric test labyrinth value of three patients in motion sickness group exceeded 75 degrees/s. In computerized posturography testing (CPT), motion sickness patients were central type (66.7%) and disperse type (23.3%); all of control group were central type. There was statistical significance in two groups' CTP area, and motion sickness group was obviously higher than control group. While stimulating vestibulum in CPT, there was abnormality (35%-50%) in motion sickness group and none in control group. Generally evaluating CPT, there was only 2 proprioceptive hypofunction, 3 visual hypofunction, and no vestibular hypofunction, but none hypofunction in control group. Motion sickness patients have high vestibular susceptible, some with vestibular hyperfunction. In posturography, a large number of motion sickness patients are central type but no vestibular hypofunction, but it is hard to keep balance when stimulating vestibulum.

    ABSTRACT: To investigate the clinical features in cochlear otosclerosis. Three cases with cochlear otosclerosis in our hospital from March 2007 to October 2008 were reported and the relevant literatures were reviewed. All the cases were confirmed the diagnose by temporal bone high-resolution CT scan (HRCT). The chief complaint when visited was recurrent episodic vertigo or equilibrium disturbance with progressing hearing loss in all cases. Two ears in 2 cases were simple sensorineural deafness and considered the pure cochlear otosclerosis. Others were mixed deafness with the descent of bone conduction in different extent. The characters in HRCT: the low density area could be seen in different areas of the otic capsule, the pericochlear lucency or double-ring effect were the typical signs. The diagnosis of cochlear otosclerosis is considered in the insoluble sensorineural deafness and the mixed deafness with vestibular symptoms and chronic hearing loss history. Temporal bone HRCT plays an important role in the clinical diagnosis of cochlear otosclerosis.
