Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an autoimmune astrocytopathy caused by anti-aquaporin 4 antibody. Only two patients with NMO have been reported presenting with hearing disorders to our knowledge. We recently treated a 40-year-old woman with NMO complaining of right hearing loss. Audiometry showed minimal asymmetry, but the auditory brainstem responses (ABR) were severely attenuated on the right. The attenuated ABR and her aural symptoms (hearing loss and fullness) improved after steroid treatment. The present case shows that the retrocochlear-type hearing loss may be associated with NMO.
