ABSTRACT

This report reviews the development of special auditory testing and the contribution of these procedures in neurotologic diagnosis. An evaluation of the tests comprising the traditional special auditory test battery indicates that most of them are no longer adequate to the task in that they are not sufficiently sensitive to minimal pathology of the eighth nerve. Several different auditory test methods are reviewed and recommended.
