Abstract: 

Background: Cerebrovasular diseases (CVD) are one of the most common anomalies which may affect on auditory cortex. In this research we have tried to evaluate the function of CANS in a group of 50-70 years old cerebrovascular accident (CVA) patients without hearing problem by using Persian version of C.S.T.
Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional analytic study was established at Loghman-e-Hakim Hospital on a group of30 normal subject (15 male, 14 female) and a group of 40 patients with CVA including 30 patients (16 male, 14 female) with abnormal CT scan and 10 patients with normal CT scan.
Results: Routine audiologic test including: Pure tone audiometry, Immitance audiometry and speech audiometry were nearly normal in all cases. There were significant differences between mean scores of CST in the patients with CVA and control group (P<0.05). There were no significant differences between mean scores of C ST in male and females (p>0.05). In spite of nearly normal hearing and high scores in the simple speech tests such as SDS, there were significant differences in mean scores of CST in both ears of CVA patients (p< 0.05). Another important point is that in some of patients with CVA.
Conclusion: Although common radiologic evaluations such as CT scan showed no anatomic or structural anomaly but central auditory assessments such as CST can show dysfunctions of CANS. Therefore, CST might be a valuable test in CANS batteries for the cerebrovascular diseases.
