Abstract

Contralateral hearing loss, after resection of an acoustic neuroma is a rare complication with an immediate or delayed onset. Hearing loss in such cases tend to be severe and progressive with sudden. onset. Hearing loss in the contralateral ear has been attributed to various causes including vasospasm, brainstem shifts, cochleo labyrinthitis, meningitis, increasedCSF pressure and noise induced hearing loss. A detailed case report of sudden hearing loss in the contralateral ear of a postoperative acoustic tumor patient is presented and discussed with reference to the possible etiology and its implications.
