Introduction: Auditory hypersensitivity is a phenomenon difficult to define for several reasons. The most important obstacle to the formulation of a clear definition is the terminology complexity, variety reported symptoms, their subjectivity and circumstances of occurrence. Abnormalities in auditory, physiological and psychological processes are connected with auditory hypersensitivity. Despite the wide range of diagnostic tests, managing a patient with this disorder is not an easy task.
Aim: The review explains the causes of inconsistencies in the terminology associated with this phenomenon, lists the types of auditory hypersensitivity mentioned in the latest literature, presents available epidemiological data and characterizes the most important diseases accompanied by auditory hypersensitivity. In addition, difficulties in determining the etiology and potential mechanisms for auditory hypersensitivity in subjects with no hearing impairment have been described. The paper also presents methods of diagnosis and treatment options proposed in the literature.
