Resumo

CALDAS, Érica Alessandra et al. Audiological characterization of children under oncologic treatment. Audiol., Commun. Res. [online]. 2015, vol.20, n.2, pp.104-109. ISSN 2317-6431.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S2317-64312015000200001492.

Purpose

To investigate the effects of cancer treatment on the auditory system of children.

Methods

The study population comprised 12 children, aged 2 to 12 years, who had been diagnosed with cancer and recommended radiotherapy with/without chemotherapy. Distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DP-OAE) and transient evoked otoacoustic emissions OAE (TE-OAE) were measured before treatment and after six months of treatment.

Results

Out of the 24 ears, only two ears (8.3%) failed the TE-OAE and DP-OAE tests, and no significant change was observed after cancer treatment.

Conclusion

Cancer treatment over a period of six months did not cause hearing impairment in this group of patients.
