Abstract

Aim: To investigate the prevalence of tinnitus and deafness in subjects with Paget's disease of bone.

Materials and methods: One hundred and thirty-four subjects in total (77 with Paget's disease) were identified and audiologically examined. Subjects' experience of tinnitus was surveyed via a questionnaire and the results compared with those of age-matched controls.

Results: Hearing loss in those with Paget's disease of bone was significantly worse than in controls. Hearing handicap was also much worse in the Paget's subjects. Sixty-one per cent of the Paget's subjects suffered from tinnitus, compared with 36 per cent of the controls.

Conclusion: Deafness is a recognized, common sequelae of Paget's disease of bone, and tinnitus is a common accompanying symptom.
