Irreversible sensorineural hearing loss as a result of azithromycin ototoxicity. A case report

Irreversible sensorineural hearing loss as a result of azithromycin ototoxicity. A case report

Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology 109(4): 435-437

Azithromycin, an azalide antibiotic, rarely causes ototoxicity. According to the few reports in existence, azithromycin-induced ototoxicity occurred following prolonged high-dose therapy in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome and resulted in a reversible sensorineural hearing loss. We present a case of irreversible sensorineural hearing loss due to azithromycin ototoxicity in an otherwise healthy woman following low-dose exposure to azithromycin.
