Lyme disease And Sudden Hearing Loss: Case Report

Lyme disease is a tck-borne multsystemic infecton caused by Borrelia burgdorferi. It can be associated with involvement of cranial nerves and otolaryngologic manifestatons. We report a case of women with sudden sensorineural hearing loss without other symptoms. Acute Lyme infecton was detected by laboratory tests. Afer systemic antbiotc treatment, hyperbaric and cortcoid treatment the patent showed a clear audiologic recovery. Although borreliosis has a low incidence, it should be considered as a possible aetological factor in sudden sensorineural hearing loss.
