Intratympanic steroids injection in bilateral sudden sensorineural hearing loss

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: To report a rare case of bilateral sudden sensorineural hearing loss. Design: Retrospective case note analysis. Materials and Methods: Review of the patient's clinical note. Results: We describe a rare case of bilateral idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss in a 66 year-old lady with underlying diabetes mellitus. It was associated with tinnitus and aural fullness. Clinically, there was no facial nerve palsy noted. Otoscopically, bilateral ear canal and tympanic membrane were normal. Initial PTA was done and the results showed left severe to profound SNHL, right profound SNHL. We proceeded with intratympanic steroids injection to both ears and the serial PTA results revealed an improvement in hearing levels. Conclusion: Bilateral sudden sensorineural hearing loss is an exceedingly rare condition.
