• We report a rare case of bilateral sudden and profound hearing loss caused by bilateral temporal bone metastasis from a primary adenocarcinoma of the tail of the pancreas. The hearing loss was the patient's only reason to seek medical care. Seventh nerve involvement was very minimal, when compared with that of the eighth nerve.
