15th ANNUAL EARLY HEARING DETECTION & INTERVENTION MEETING
March 13-15, 2016 • San Diego, CA
3/14/2016 | 2:00 PM - 2:30 PM | Topical Session 2 | Royal Palm 1/2 | 1 - EHDI Program Enhancement
Newborns with asymptomatic cCMV identified through hospital-based screening (positive CMV urine culture within 3 days of life) during 1982-1992 were evaluated using auditory brainstem response, behavioral audiometry, and tympanometry. Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) was defined as ?25dB threshold in any frequency, and characterized as progressive or fluctuating-progressive (overall deterioration with intermittent improvement) based on changes ?20dB in any frequency, or ?10dB in the 4-pure-tone-average of 0.5, 1, 2, and 4 kHz, or across any 2 or 3 frequencies in consecutive exams, without middle ear disorder.
Of 92 children with asymptomatic cCMV, 82 (89%) were last evaluated at age 9-18 years, of which, 20 (24%) children had SNHL. Nine (45%) children had congenital SNHL, 1 bilaterally and 8 unilaterally; 5 were first evaluated ?3 months and 4 between 4-10 months. Of 8 children who initially had congenital SNHL unilaterally, 5 (63%) developed delayed-onset SNHL in the normal hearing ear, diagnosed at age 6 months in 1 child and between 4-10 years in 4 (80%). Eleven children with initial normal hearing had delayed-onset SNHL, 3 bilaterally and 8 unilaterally; 1 (9%) diagnosed at age 1 year, 4 (36%) between 5-8 years, 5 (45%) between 9-14 years, and 1 (9%) at 17 years. SNHL was progressive in 10 children and fluctuating-progressive in 2. Progression to SNHL >90dB in the worse ear was observed in 9 children. At last evaluation, 2 (2%) of 92 children with asymptomatic cCMV had bilateral SNHL between 40-70dB and 2 (2%) at >70dB.
Asymptomatic cCMV is associated with congenital and delayed-onset SNHL that may manifest and progress throughout adolescence. Ongoing long-term audiological follow-up is needed to provide timely interventions and better understanding on the burden of CMV-related SNHL.
- Describe the proportion of children with asymptomatic congenital CMV infection who are diagnosed with SNHL shortly after birth
- Describe the proportion of children with asymptomatic congenital CMV infection who are diagnosed with SNHL after a time span of 18 years
