Effect of experimental hypothyroidism on hearing in adult guinea pigs.

Abstract

A group of guinea pigs was rendered hypothyroid using propylthiouracil solution in their drinking water. The animals were hypothyroid for at least 120 days. During this time no change was noted in their hearing thresholds for high-frequency clicks. The audiometric evaluation was performed using brainstem evoked response audiometry.
