Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss in a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber
Employee Following Parotidectomy
Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) is uncommon and oftentimes
idiopathic. We describe the unique presentation of SSNHL in an HBO
chamber employee following a parotidectomy, whose chief complaint was
otalgia and aural fullness during dives. She ultimately recovered
completely due to timely diagnosis and a high-dose steroid taper.
