ELIAS, Karla Maria Ibrahim da Freiria; SANTOS, Maria Francisca Colella dos; CIASCA, Sylvia Maria  e  MOURA-RIBEIRO, Maria Valeriana Leme de. Auditory processing in children with cerebrovascular disease. Pró-Fono R. Atual. Cient. [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.4, pp.393-400. ISSN 0104-5687.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-56872007000400012.

BACKGROUND: cerebrovascular disease (CVD) during childhood is a rare condition; its short, medium and long-term characteristics deserve further investigation. The application of behavioral techniques may improve clinical characterization, thus rendering more efficient therapeutic planning and control. AIM: to describe the audiological manifestations in a child with CVD in two distinct moments of clinical follow-up. METHOD: the child, with a confirmed diagnosis of a single and unilateral episode of CVD, presenting satisfactory cognition and language skills, was submitted to a battery of conventional and auditory processing tests, which included a simplified evaluation as well as monotic, dichotic, and temporal processing tests. The obtained data was paired with those of a normal right-handed child, of the same gender, age and socio-cultural level. RESULTS: results indicate impairments in auditory memory as well as in selective attention during binaural separation and integration tasks for verbal and non-verbal stimuli. CONCLUSION: clinical development, although favorable, was below the average expected for the same age when compared to the control. The prospective evaluation of a child with DCV permitted the characterization of the auditory behavior, the definition of its parameters as well as the development of the audiological characteristics.
