COSTA, Kátia S. et al. Autoimmune sensorioneural hearing loss in children: a case report. Rev. Bras. Otorrinolaringol. [online]. 2004, vol.70, n.3, pp.394-397. ISSN 0034-7299.

The autoimmune inner ear disease is a rare case of reversible sensorioneural hearing loss. The typical afflicted patient is the middle-aged woman, and it is very rare in the pediatric population. The diagnosis is based on disease manifestations, laboratory exams and a positive corticosteroid response. The audiometric evaluation does not revel typical characteristics. The authors report a case of autoimmune sensorioneural hearing loss in a seven-year-old child.

Keywords : autoimmune sensorioneural hearing loss; inner ear; children.
