Two cases of acute psychogenic hearing loss needed to be differentiated from idiopathic sudden deafness



Two cases of acute psychogenic hearing loss needed to be differentiated from idiopathic sudden deafness



Jibi Inkoka Tokeibu Geka 74(6): 389-392



We experienced two patients with psychogenic hearing loss that occurred acutely, which needed to be differentiated from sudden deafness. The first patient was a 32-year-old man who developed sudden hearing loss and tinnitus in the left ear. The second patient was a 20-year-old woman who developed sudden hearing loss bilaterally. Both cases showed Jerger type V on Bekesy's audiometry and normal auditory brainstem response and stapedial reflex. Speech discrimination testing suggested that their hearing acuity was better than that observed on pure-tone audiometry. Both patients were under severe stress and thereby diagnosed as having psychogenic hearing loss. Their hearing showed recovery without medication.
