Associations between antibodies against the endothelial cell and Cytomegalovirus in serum of children with cochlear implant surgery

Abstract: Background: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the common causes of SNHL (Sensorineural hearing loss) in Iranian children. Immune-mediated vascular damage induced by endothelial cell antibodies may have a prominent role in sensorineural hearing loss. OBJECTIVES: To determine the relation between serum CMV antibodies and AECA in children with cochlear implant surgery. Materials & methods: A cross sectional study was performed on 76 cases with severe SNHL at cochlear implant ward in our center.The titers of antibodies against endothelial cell (IFA)and CMV IgG & IgM (ELISA) determined in cases. RESULTS: Positive AECAs:14.4 % (11/76) of cases ; Positive CMV-IgM &IgG were determined in %52;34.6% ; A meaningful correlation was observed between positive AECAs and CMV infections . Conclusion: At least in our country, in younger application of specific anti CMV drugs are preferred. Immunosuppressive therapy is only recommended in older cases with positive AECAs.
