Autoimmune Inner Ear Disease Quiz - Quiz

Autoimmune inner ear disease occurs when the body mistakenly attacks your inner ear. It is most of the time mistakenly diagnosed as normal ear trouble until the situation becomes worse. Take this quiz to test your knowledge on the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and cure of this disease.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Patients of autoimmune inner ear disease experience trouble in one ear which then spreads to _____

    • A.

      The brain

    • B.

      The nervous system

    • C.

      The other ear

    • D.

      The spinal cord

    Correct Answer
    C. The other ear
    Explanation
    Patients of autoimmune inner ear disease experience trouble in one ear initially, but this condition can progress and affect the other ear as well. This is because autoimmune inner ear disease involves the immune system mistakenly attacking the inner ear, leading to inflammation and damage. As the immune response continues, it can spread to the other ear, causing similar symptoms and complications. Therefore, the correct answer is "The other ear."

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Which of these is a symptom of autoimmune inner ear disease?

    • A.

      Vertigo

    • B.

      Fever

    • C.

      Hallucinations

    • D.

      Extreme tiredness

    Correct Answer
    A. Vertigo
    Explanation
    Vertigo is a symptom of autoimmune inner ear disease. Autoimmune inner ear disease is a condition where the immune system mistakenly attacks the inner ear, leading to inflammation and damage. This can result in various symptoms, including vertigo, which is a sensation of spinning or dizziness. Other symptoms of autoimmune inner ear disease may include hearing loss, tinnitus, and ear fullness. Fever, hallucinations, and extreme tiredness are not typically associated with this condition.

      AIED

    • C.

      AEID

    • D.

      ADIE

    Correct Answer
    B. AIED
    Explanation
    The correct abbreviation for autoimmune inner ear deficiency is AIED. This abbreviation accurately represents the condition and is commonly used in medical literature and discussions.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Which of the following is a treatment for autoimmune inner ear disease?

    • A.

      It goes away on its own

    • B.

      ​Common ear drops

    • C.

      Physiotherapy

    • D.

      High dose of steroids

    Correct Answer
    D. High dose of steroids
    Explanation
    High dose of steroids is a treatment for autoimmune inner ear disease because it helps to suppress the immune system and reduce inflammation in the inner ear. This can help alleviate symptoms such as hearing loss, dizziness, and ringing in the ears. Steroids can also help prevent further damage to the inner ear and improve the chances of recovery. Other treatments such as common ear drops or physiotherapy may provide symptomatic relief but do not address the underlying autoimmune response. Autoimmune inner ear disease does not typically go away on its own, making high dose steroids an important treatment option.

  • 5. 

    The existence of autoimmune inner ear disease has been recognized since _____

    • A.

      1959

    • B.

      1969

    • C.

      1979

    • D.

      1989

    Correct Answer
    C. 1979
    Explanation
    Autoimmune inner ear disease has been recognized since 1979. This suggests that prior to 1979, the condition was not well understood or identified as a distinct autoimmune disorder affecting the inner ear. The recognition of autoimmune inner ear disease in 1979 marked an important milestone in understanding and diagnosing this condition.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Pick the correct option

    • A.

      This disease is more common amongst men

    • B.

      The disease is more common amongst women

    • C.

      The disease is more common amongst pet owners

    • D.

      It is caused by loud music

    Correct Answer
    B. The disease is more common amongst women
    Explanation
    The given answer states that the disease is more common amongst women. This suggests that the disease has a higher prevalence or occurrence rate in women compared to other groups mentioned. The explanation for this could be due to various factors such as hormonal differences, genetic predisposition, or lifestyle factors that are more prevalent in women. However, without specific information about the disease in question, it is difficult to provide a more detailed explanation.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Initial onset of autoimmune inner ear disease happens within this age bracket

    • A.

      5-10 years

    • B.

      10-20 years

    • C.

      60-90 years

    • D.

      20-50 years

    Correct Answer
    D. 20-50 years
    Explanation
    Autoimmune inner ear disease is a condition where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the inner ear. The initial onset of this disease typically occurs between the ages of 20 and 50 years. This age bracket is when individuals are more susceptible to autoimmune disorders and their immune systems may be more dysregulated. The immune system gradually weakens as people age, so the onset of autoimmune inner ear disease is less common in older individuals. Additionally, the disease is less likely to affect children and young adults, which explains why the other age brackets are not the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following infectious diseases is associated with autoimmune hearing loss?

    • A.

      Cough

    • B.

      Syphilis

    • C.

      Diarrhea

    • D.

      Measles

    Correct Answer
    B. Syphilis
    Explanation
    Syphilis is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. It can cause various complications, including autoimmune hearing loss. This occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the cells in the inner ear, leading to hearing loss. Other symptoms of syphilis can include skin rashes, fever, fatigue, and neurological problems. Treatment with antibiotics can help to cure syphilis and prevent further complications.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Over activation of which cells lead to ear problems?

    • A.

      Brain cells

    • B.

      D cells

    • C.

      T cells

    • D.

      A cells

    Correct Answer
    C. T cells
    Explanation
    T cells are a type of white blood cells that play a crucial role in the immune response. When T cells become overactivated, they can cause inflammation and damage to various tissues, including the ear. This can result in ear problems such as infections, inflammation of the ear canal, or even hearing loss. Therefore, the overactivation of T cells can lead to ear problems.
