Can coloured lights really stop that ringing in your ears

Researchers at the University of Leicester are testing coloured light as a new treatment approach, based on a discovery from research with migraine patients who also happened to have tinnitus.

Background and purposeIdiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH) is characterized by abnormally elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) without identifiable etiology. Recently, however, a subset of patients with presumed IIH have been found with isolated internal jugular vein (IJV) stenosis in the absence of intracranial abnormalities. MethodsFifteen consecutive patients were screened from 46 patients suspected as IIH and were finally confirmed as isolated IJV stenosis. The stenotic IJV was corrected with stenting when the trans‐stenotic mean pressure gradient (∆MPG) was equal to or higher than 5.44 cmH2O. Dynamic magneti...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results may indicate that vestibular symptoms in pediatric patients may act as a predisposing factor to develop vestibular migraine at an earlier age in adulthood. PMID: 29205326 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Female, 60 years old, with headache and recurrent left tinnitus. Has been to several ENT clinics. Stayed unexplained for 5 Yrs.  MRI brain incidentally detected the finding described below.Case submitted by Dr. A. Altamimi, MD, DMRD, FRCR, Consultant RadiologistMRI Brain revealed : special note is the presence of an incidentaloma in the form of a lobulated oval mass (about 2.5 x 3 x 4.5 cm) embedded in the left upper neck at the level of the carotid bifurcation (splaying the ICA and ECA carotid arteries) with some localized mass effect. It is generally iso-to-hypointense to muscle on T1, ...

Authors: Kleinjung T, Thüring C, Güntensperger D, Neff P, Meyer M Abstract Neurofeedback is a noninvasive neuromodulation technique employing real-time display of brain activity in terms of electroencephalography (EEG) signals to teach self-regulation of distinct patterns of brain activity or influence brain activity in a targeted manner. The benefit of this approach for control of symptoms in attention deficit disorders, hyperactivity, depression, and migraine has been proven. Studies in recent years have also repeatedly shown this treatment to improve tinnitus symptoms, although it has not become e...

Conclusion: Surgical drainage is preferable to more aggressive resection procedures, with the latter reserved for recurrent lesions or lesions with severe hearing loss/involvement of critical neurovascular structures. ITF-B approach provides adequate cyst and neurovascular control for resection, while avoiding brain retraction. An initial wait-and-scan approach can be used in most patients where symptoms and imaging justify so.

Conclusion: SSNHL patients had a higher prevalence of migraine. Although those with migraine had higher recovery rates, the differences were not statistically significant.

We present the case of a 46 year old female that presented with right tinnitus, dizziness and bifrontal headache, progressive, starting two years before. Imaging studies reveals an incidentally neoplastic extraaxial homogeneous appearance tumor on the right anterior skull base. She undewernt surgical treatment with total resection of the tumor by a bicoronal approach. The histopathological study reported schwannoma.Although attributte the origin of schwannomas from the the olfactory nerve is near impossible, once they do not have Schwann cells, intracranial supratentorial schwannomas are mainly located in the anterior skull base.
