Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The authors present a report of 38 cases of sudden deafness (SD), observed in the Bambino Gesù Hospital in Rome. Twenty-six cases were due to infective causes, such as mumps, meningitis, measles, varicella or to physical trauma. The other 12 cases were defined as idiopathic (ISD) on the basis of their anamnestic and clinical findings. The etiological, prognostic and therapeutic aspects are discussed.
