Inner ear malformations in siblings presenting with vestibular symptoms in early childhood
IRT Butler, RY Seedat
South African Journal of Child Health , 2011,
Abstract: Introduction. Although the association between inner ear abnormalities and progressive sensorineural hearing loss is well known, vestibular signs or loss of vestibular function in these patients are often unrecognised by medical practitioners. Case report. We report on two siblings with identical inner ear malformations, with special reference to the vestibular symptoms they displayed, as well as the rapid decline in hearing they both experienced in early childhood. We provide a brief overview of the latest classification of these inner ear defects as well as a review of the literature pertaining to children with inner ear malformations presenting with vestibular symptoms. Conclusion. Gross anatomical defects of the inner ear are present in approximately 20% of cases of congenital hearing loss. These defects may result in a rapidly progressive hearing loss. Any child presenting with vestibular symptoms should be referred for an audiological assessment.
Mite and cockroach sensitisation in patients with allergic rhinitis in the Free State
RY Seedat, J Claassen, AJ Claassen, G Joubert
South African Medical Journal , 2010,
Abstract: Background. Studies in patients with allergic rhinitis living in the Free State have shown grass pollens to be the predominant allergens, with house-dust mite sensitisation being less prevalent than in the coastal areas and a low rate of sensitisation to the storage mite Lepidoglyphus destructor. No studies have been conducted on sensitisation to the other storage mites, spider mites or cockroaches. We aimed to determine the prevalence of sensitisation to various housedust mites, storage mites, spider mites and cockroaches in patients with allergic rhinitis living in the Free State. Methods. Fifty consecutive patients with allergic rhinitis attending the ear, nose and throat clinic at Universitas Hospital underwent skin-prick testing and/or ImmunoCAP RAST testing for common aero-allergens, house-dust mites, storage mites, spider mites and cockroaches. Results. Forty-six per cent of patients were sensitised to one of the house-dust mites, with house mite sensitisation being significantly more common in patients who had previously lived at the coast. Storage mites were not common aeroallergens, while 46% of patients were sensitised to the spider mite Tetranychus urticae. Blatella germanica was the cockroach species to which patients were most commonly found to be sensitised on ImmunoCAP RAST testing, with 38% of patients being sensitised to this aero-allergen. Conclusions. House-dust mites, T. urticae and the cockroach B. germanica appear to be important aero-allergens in the Free State. Storage mite sensitisation is not common.
When Relevance Decenters Criticality: The Case of the South African National Crime, Violence and Injury Lead Programme
SEEDAT,MOHAMED;
Revista Colombiana de Psicología , 2010,
Abstract: following the formal demise of political apartheid in south africa in 1994, critical and community-centred psychologists have tended to obtain relevance through alignment with the tenets of social justice and the larger democratic project. this article draws on the experiences of the crime, violence and injury lead programme (cvi) to illustrate how particular formulations of scientific and social relevance function to marginalize criticality and critical scholarship. the author suggests that relevance without criticality produces forms of intellectual activity that privilege empiricist traditions, perpetrate a binary between research and research translation, and reproduce the myth that intervention work is atheoretical. the review of the cvi serves as a reminder of the challenges inherent in enactments of critical psychology. among the many issues that critical psychology oriented initiatives like cvi have to contend with is the task of developing theoretical and other resources to move between co-operation and critique in the service of democratic development.

The management of trauma and posttraumatic stress disorder in HIV-infected individuals
J Pingo, S Seedat
Southern African Journal of HIV Medicine , 2009,
Abstract: Women are disproportionately affected by the HIV epidemic and also carry a higher burden of early childhood trauma, other life traumas (e.g. rape and partner violence) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).1,2 Yet PTSD and other common psychiatric disorders (e.g. depression, alcohol abuse) are commonly under-detected in HIV care settings. For many HIV-infected individuals in South Africa, HIV clinical care is the primary point at which mental illness can be identified and an intervention can be administered.3 When one considers the high prevalence of trauma and PTSD in infected patients, and its potential effects on antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence, disease progression and quality of life, it is clear that correctly identifying and treating these conditions can significantly contribute to optimal patient care.
Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) protein levels in anxiety disorders: systematic review and meta-regression analysis
Sharain Suliman,Soraya Seedat
Frontiers in Integrative Neuroscience , 2013, DOI: 10.3389/fnint.2013.00055
Abstract: Background: Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) is a neurotrophin that is involved in the synaptic plasticity and survival of neurons. BDNF is believed to be involved in the pathogenesis of several neuropsychiatric disorders. As findings of BDNF levels in anxiety disorders have been inconsistent, we undertook to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of studies that assessed BDNF protein levels in these disorders.
