AbstractDespite common clinical features to suggest encephalitis, different viral encephalitides are known to have some specific clinical features, which if present, may suggest infection by a particular virus. West Nile viral (WNV) encephalitis has not been described with any specific diagnostic feature so far. In this context, we describe three patients of West Nile encephalitis (WNE) who had behavioural and cognitive impairment with acute irreversible bilaterally symmetrical sensorineural deafness. Clinical profiles of these cases suggest that the patients who present with prominent behavioural and cognitive changes and...

ConclusionsTo the best of our knowledge, this is the first description of the above-mentioned RWN radiological variations supported by endoscopic data. This study suggests an additional anatomical evaluation that could be useful to predict the RW membrane visibility through a posterior tympanotomy approach. Further studies are required to support the clinical implications of our observations.

In this study, using next-generation sequencing, we investigated the DNA of a family visiting a clinic for hearing loss. A new missense mutation was found in COL4A3 of 5 patients, c.3227C>T (p.P1076L). Based on these results, we predict that the mutation is pathogenic and leads to abnormal collagen IV. Here, we report for the first time on this autosomal dominant syndrome, characterized by hearing loss and eye abnormalities, but without renal damage, in all carriers. Since the oldest patient in the trial was less than 50 years old, however, we recommend that renal examination be reviewed regularly. Our results reveal ex...
