Abstract

The case of a 57-year-old man who presented with acute bilateral deafness and vestibular dysfunction following occipital bone fracture is described. Plain radiographs and a CT scan of the head demonstrated a single fracture of the occipital bone. Complete loss of cochlear and vestibular function bilaterally was demonstrated and followed by partial recovery of auditory function over the following months. Review of the literature has not revealed a previously reported case.
