Auditory brainstem responses in cats with Chediak-Higashi syndrome

Acta Otolaryngol. 1994 Jul;114(4):373-5. doi: 10.3109/00016489409126072.


Auditory brainstem responses ABRs were recorded in cats with Chediak-Higashi syndrome using monaural stimulation. The components appearing between 1 and 3 ms after stimulus onset were greatly attenuated in the ABRs recorded using a reference contralateral to the stimulated ear. These data suggest that abnormalities exist in the brainstem auditory pathway in the region of the superior olivary complex in cats with Chediak-Higashi syndrome.
