BACKGROUND: Hearing loss is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide, with greater than 20% of Canadian adults having measurable hearing loss in at least one ear. Patients with hearing loss experience impaired quality of life, and emotional and financial consequences that affect themselves and their families. Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) is a common but difficult to treat form of hearing loss that has a sudden onset of ≤ 72 h associated with various etiologies, with the majority of cases being idiopathic...

Acute idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL) following lumbar spinal surgery is an exceedingly rare phenomenon. This paper presents a case of ISSNHL presenting acutely after lumbar spine decompression and fusion treated with transtympanic steroids and hyperbaric oxygen (HBO₂) therapy. It also presents the ironic case of SSNHL secondary to presumed viral pathology sustained by the patient's operative surgeon who was treated with transtympanic steroids and HBO₂ as well. Proposed etiologies of the patient's ISSNHL include: hypotension, prone operative position, malfitted/malpositioned headrest, microemboli from a cell-saver, and nitrous oxide anesthesia...

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) is a multifactorial disease, and its etiology remains elusive. SSNHL is possibly caused by both the environmental factors and genetic alterations. Recently, several studies suggested that inflammation may be involved in the pathogenesis of SSNHL, and certain gene polymorphisms may have correlations with SSNHL. Interleukin 6 (IL-6) functions both as a pro-inflammatory cytokine and an anti-inflammatory factor. Intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) is a member of the immunoglobulin family that is also involved in inflammation response...

BACKGROUND: Complete blood count (CBC) is an important blood test in clinical practice, and it has been recently used to predict the prognosis of patients with sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL). Some haematological indices of the CBC test have been reported to be associated with the clinical outcome of SSNHL. However, the prognostic value of these haematological indices in SSNHL is currently under debate. Here, we performed a meta-analysis to investigate the association between haematological indices of the CBC test and clinical outcomes in patients with SSNHL...

Bacterial meningitis is a relatively uncommon condition encountered in the emergency department and the constellation of symptoms varies. Hearing loss has been well documented in the literature as a complication of the disease process, but not as the presenting complaint. We describe a case of a 59-year-old female who presented to the emergency department with sudden onset bilateral hearing loss who was found to have S. pneumonia meningitis bacterial meningitis. Even with advances in therapy, bacterial meningitis still carries a significant mortality rate...

AIMS: The frequency of the use of intratympanic steroids (ITS) as a treatment for idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss (ISSNHL) in Europe is still unknown and remains a contentious issue amongst otolaryngologists. We undertook a survey of otolaryngologists in Germany and Austria to establish if there is any professional consensus with which to form a protocol for its use. METHODS: A survey of 21 questions was distributed electronically to otolaryngologists in Germany and Austria and data on demographics, indications for intratympanic treatment, procedure, follow-up, and outcomes were analysed...

Introduction: Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) is an important otological emergency. Up to 90% of the cases are idiopathic. Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is an extremely rare identifiable cause as it only represents 0.5% of all strokes. Case Report: In this paper, an unusual case of bilateral SSNHL secondary to bilateral CVT with rapid and complete recovery is reported. The patient presented with sudden bilateral hearing loss associated with some neurological symptoms...

Although sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) affects chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients more frequently than non-CKD patients, few reports have described SSNHL in dialysis patients. We aimed to review the characteristics of SSNHL in chronic dialysis patients and evaluate treatment responses to steroid therapy. We retrospectively reviewed the records of dialysis patients diagnosed with idiopathic SSNHL at Asan Medical Center between January 2000 and December 2014. Pure tone and speech audiometry analyzes were performed before and 2 weeks and 2 months after treatment onset to evaluate outcomes...

A 72-year-old Japanese woman diagnosed with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis was admitted to our hospital with hearing loss, temporal pain, and sudden blindness. We finally diagnosed recurrent granulomatosis with polyangiitis and initiated methyl-prednisolone pulse therapy (1,000 mg) followed by prednisolone (30 mg/day) and rituximab (RTX). After the third RTX administration, she developed bloody stools along with acute thrombocytopenia and low complement levels. We diagnosed rituximab-induced acute thrombocytopenia (RIAT), and her platelet counts spontaneously recovered...

Although an association between Lassa fever (LF) and sudden-onset sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) was confirmed clinically in 1990, the prevalence of LF-induced SNHL in endemic countries is still underestimated. LF, a viral hemorrhagic fever disease caused by Lassa virus (LASV), is endemic in West Africa, causing an estimated 500,000 cases and 5,000 deaths per year. Sudden-onset SNHL, one complication of LF, occurs in approximately one-third of survivors and constitutes a neglected public health and social burden...
