Abstract

Central auditory function in spastic dysphonia was evaluated with a battery of eight clinical audiometric procedures. There were differences in performance between 12 patients who had spastic dysphonia and 12 control subjects for five of the eight tests—acoustic reflex amplitude, performance-intensity functions for synthetic sentence identification, synthetic sentence identification with ipsilateral competing message, staggered spondaic word test, and an auditory brainstem response measure. Compared with the control group, the pattern of findings for the spastic dysphonia group suggested a subtle central auditory impairment at the brainstem level. Inexplicably, there was also an unusually high proportion of apparent ear abnormalities in the spastic dysphonia group.
