A PREVIOUSLY healthy 33-year-old man presented with a 6-year history of gradually progressive left-sided hearing loss that was associated with constant high-pitched left-sided tinnitus. The hearing loss had been especially bothersome over the previous 2 years. The patient, who was right-handed, had a history of noise exposure as a result of target shooting and woodworking. He denied having had meningitis, ear infections, ear surgery, otalgia, otorrhea, aural pressure, head trauma, or vertigo.
