Autoimmune inner ear disease - report of three cases
Mariola Śliwińska-Kowalska, Janina Grzegorczyk, Piotr Kotyło, Marta Fiszer, Marek L.Kowalski

Autoimmune inner ear disease, originally described by McCabe in 1979, is characterised with rapidly progressive bilateral hearing loss, often accompanied by tinnitus, and less common vestibular symptoms (vertigo). This study reports three cases of autoimmune inner ear disease. Two patients demonstrated isolated syndrome, while in the third one, inner ear disease was accompanied with other autoimmune diseases - myasthenia gravis and rheumatoid arthritis. Authors emphasise that early diagnosis of patients with suspected autoimmune hearing loss is necessary for successful treatment with immunosuppressive therapy.
