Sudden sensorineural hearing loss during pregnancy

M. Georgescu, M. Tampa, C. Matei, D. Paun

Abstract: Important changes take place during pregnancy. Electrolyte imbalance and hormone fluctuations are recognised as triggers for neurological impairment, also commonly found in otorhinolaryngology. After delivery most of these deficits spontaneously remit. Still, due to ethical considerations treatment is mandatory in order to facilitate recovery of the neurological deficit. This case report presents a 33-year pregnant woman suffering from sudden unilateral sensorineural hearing loss and tinnitus in the third trimester. Although Dextrane 40 infusion treatment was successful, with measurable improvement on the pure tone audiogram, pharmacological treatment during pregnancy has to be carefully and individually coordinated. An interdisciplinary approach in diagnostic and therapeutic measures together with gynaecologists appears obligatory.
