As an overview, low frequency (or tone) sensorineural hearing loss (LF SNHL or LT SNHL) is unusual, and mainly reported in Meniere's disease as well as related conditions such as low CSF pressure. Le Prell et al (2011) suggested that low frequency hearing loss was detected in 2.7% of normal college student's ears. Oishi et al (2010) suggested that about half of patients with LTSNHL developed high or flat hearing loss within 10 years of onset.
The new international criteria for Meniere's disease require observation of a low-tone SNHL. Gatland et al (1991) reported fluctuation in hearing at low frequencies with dialysis was common, and suggested there might be treatment induced changes in fluid or electrolyte composition of endolymph (e.g.
Although OAE's are generally obliterated in patients with hearing loss > 30 dB, for any mechanism other than neural, this is not always the case in the low-tone SNHL associated with Meniere's disease. The lack of universal correspondence between audios and OAE's in low-tone SNHL in at least some patients with Meniere's, suggests that the mechanism of hearing loss may not always be due to cochlear damage. Of course, in a different clinical context, one might wonder if the patient with the discrepency between OAE and audiogram might be pretending to have hearing loss.
Papers are easy to publish about genetic hearing loss conditions, so the literature is somewhat oversupplied with these.
Bespalova et al (2001) reported that low frequency SNHL may be associated with Wolfram syndrome, an autosomal recessive genetic disorder (diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus, optic atrophy, and deafness). Bramhall et al (2008) a reported that "the majority of hereditary LFSNHL is associated with heterozygous mutations in the WFS1 gene (wolframin protein). Eckert et al(2013) suggested that cerebral white matter hyperintensities predict low frequency hearing in older adults. Fukaya et al (1991) suggested that LFSN can be due to microinfarcts in the brainstem during surgery. Ito et al (1998) suggested that bilateral low-frequency SNHL suggested vertebrobasilar insufficiency. Yurtsever et al (2015) reported low and mid-frequency hearing loss in a single patient with Susac syndrome.
There are an immense number of reports of LTSNHL after spinal anesthesia and related conditions with low CSF pressure.
Fog et al (1990) reported low frequency hearing loss in patients undergoing spinal anesthesia where a larger needle was used.
Waisted et al (1991) suggested that LFSNHL after spinal anesthesia was due to low perilymph pressure. Wang et al reported hearing reduction after prostate surgery with spinal anesthesia (1987). We have encountered a patient, about 50 years old, with a low-tone sensorineural hearing loss that occured in the context of a herpes zoster infection (Ramsay-Hunt).


LTSNHL is generally viewed as either a variant of Meniere's disease or a variant of sudden hearing loss, and the same medications are used.
During diving and flight elevation or landing, the pressure is changing To adapt to it, pressure of middle ear should be changed accordingly by opening up the eustachian tube.
Pure tone audiogram is necessary as it usually shows conductive hearing loss.  However if inner ear is involved, sensorineural hearing loss may be seen. For blood or fluid in the middle ear, observation is suggested.  But it can be drained by myringotomy if it is not subsided after a period of time.
If there is inner ear injury, conservative management such as bed rest and drugs is recommended.  But if hearing deteriorates progressively, surgical exploration and operation would be suggested. Acute otitis media is acute infection of the middle ear which is either due to viral or bacterial infection.
After AOM, some fluid may accumulate in the middle ear resulting in conductive hearing loss. While the majority of eardrum perforation heals spontaneously, some perforations persist due to unresolved infection or Eustachian tube dysfunction.
Normally the middle ear and external ear canal is separated by the thin membrane called tympanic membrane or ear drum. It is different from the usual CSOM (chronic suppurative otitis media) that skin "grows" inside the middle ear and mastoid process and forms a "tumour-like" plague.
It is usually presented as sudden onset of sustained vertigo and dys-equilibrium accompanied by a spontaneous wobbling of eyeballs lasting from 3 to 7 days followed by gradual resolution. Basically it only needs supportive treatment with relief of dizziness during the acute episode. The patient with BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) experiences severe spinning associated with a change of head position. A test called Dix-Hallipike maneuver is done for eliciting nystamus (wobbling of eyeballs) and vertigo caused by posterior canal BPPV. In general, the theory of canalithiasis, which is well accepted as the explanation of BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo)? It is a condition where a benign tumor is arising from the eighth cranial nerve which is called vestibulocochlear nerve (mostly involves the vestibular nerve rather than the cochlear nerve). The classic presentation of acoustic neuroma would be unilateral progressive sensorineural hearing loss. We can either treat it with hearing aids or operative treatment which is called stapedectomy. Systemic steroid is the evidence based treatment of choice as it can suppress the inflammation caused by the viral infection. To us, this seems a little overly stringent, compared to the earlier 1995 AAO criteria that just required any kind of hearing loss, but criteria are better than no criteria.


That being said, genetic conditions should not be your first thought when you encounter a patient with LTSNHL. One would think that diabetes insipidus is so rare that hearing loss is probably not the main reason these individuals are seeking attention.
These patients are extremely rare because there isn't much microsurgery done close to the brainstem. We are dubious about the conclusion of this paper because it is different than nearly every other paper in the literature.
We are dubious that this has any applicability to humans and we have never seen a patient with lithium toxicity with any LFSNHL. We have observed this occasionally ourselves, but of course, the usual pattern is a conductive hyperacusis. We find this somewhat plausible as pregnancy and delivery might be associated with spinal anesthesia, with changes in collagen, and with gigantic changes in hormonal status. For otitis externa (ear canal infection), ear toilet, topical antibiotic eardrops with or without oral antibiotic is the standard treatment. Except paediatric cases with bilateral OME and hearing impairment, we may observe for any resolution of OME with time. The most frequently cited occurrence of this symptom follows rolling over in bed or getting into bed and assuming a lying-on-back position.
When we turn or move our head or change our positions, the stone-like substances in the ampulla ( the organ for sense of balance)moves and irritate the said organ.
Normally, the lesions are removed by excision and the specimen is then checked by pathologist. There is a large literature about genetic causes, mainly in Wolfram's syndrome ( diabetes insipidus, diabetes mellitus, optic atrophy, and deafness), probably because it is relatively easier to publish articles about genetic problems.
He defined LTSNH as that the sum of the three low frequencies (125, 250, 500) was more than 100 dB, and the sum of the 3 high frequencies (2, 4, 8) was less than 60 dB. In other words, Wolfram's is probably not diagnosed mainly by ENT's or audiologists, but rather by renal medicine doctors, as DI is exceedingly rare, while LTSNHL is not so rare in hearing tests. That being said, it is very rare to encounter any substantial change in hearing after pregnancy. Roughly speaking, the frequency patterns of hearing loss are divided up into: Low-frequency, mid-frequency, high-frequency, notches, and flat.
