A 57-year-old man presented to the outpatient department with sudden bilateral hearing loss. The otological examination suggested bilateral severe sensorineural hearing loss. After several hours, the patient complained of a headache and became drowsy. The brain computed tomography showed a 3 x 4 cm intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) of the left temporal lobe. Surgery was performed and 34 days after the procedure the patient was discharged from the hospital with severe bilateral sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Temporal lobe ICH should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients with sudden bilateral hearing loss, regardless of the other neurological symptoms.
Key Words: Intracerebral hemorrhage; Sudden hearing loss; Temporal lobe
