Abstract [en]

Nine subjects with long-term (8-30 years) occupational exposure to industrial solvents and a confirmed diagnosis of psycho-organic syndrome (POS) have been studied with audiological and otoneurological test batteries. The results were compared to a matched control group of nine industrial workers not exposed to solvents and to normal data from healthy volunteers. In the clinical examination, the Romberg test identified 5/9 workers as pathologic and concurrently the stabilometry showed significantly larger sway areas in the POS-group. In the audiological test battery, the significantly pathologic tests were discrimination of interrupted speech and evoked cortical responses to frequency glides (CRA-delta-f). The saccade test disclosed abnormal findings in 5/9 workers. In the smooth pursuit test, abnormality was found at some test frequencies using pseudorandomized stimulus. The VOR-suppression test was significantly abnormal at all test frequencies. The test battery used strongly indicates CNS lesions due to industrial solvents.
