Hi Steve,

I don't know if my two older brothers fit the bill, but both had measels when they were yound with a high 
fever. They both were pretty much half deaf shortly after.

They are 51 and 54 and I am 41 with what appears to be SIT.

I don't know if they are too old, or if they would have to answer more than a questionaire.

However, I will be telling the ENY at NYU about them on Monday, as it might be the reason for my tinnitus in 
some way.
