Unilateral deafness

Summary

Unilateral conductive deafness has a readily determined aetiology in most cases. In contrast, unilateral sensorineural hearing loss requires more refined and extensive investigation. The most frequent causes of unilateral sensorineural hearing loss in our patients were sudden deafness, Menière's disease, cranio-vertebral dysplasia and cerebellopontine angle tumors. Early diagnosis of acoustic neuroma or other lesions of the internal auditory meatus or cerebellopontine angle requires special attention. The definitive diagnosis of these tumors often demands intensive clinical investigation but a high degree of suspicion may be entertained following modern routine audiometry, vestibular function testing and radiological examination. The importance of early diagnosis of these lesions is stressed with regard to the mortality rate for larger tumors and to the preservation of facial nerve function. The reliability of different diagnostic investigations is documented.
