ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
A thirteen year old girl lost 75-90% of all higher pitched hearing in one ear. She hears deep pitched sounds slightly. This happened overnight. She has gone through a contrast MRI, balance testing, two comprehensive audiograms and a neurological exam without any doctor understanding the cause or whether it could/will happen to the other ear. She had no virus at the time. She was suffering from ringing in her ear that was causing her a lot of discomfort. Recently she got a hearing aid and her mood elevated. The ringing went away, and she can hear again. The question is why did this happen and will it happen again...
