Sudden onset sensorineural hearing loss is an emergency condition in otorhinolaryngology. Despite its common occurrence, the investigation and treatment of this condition are still controversial. Auditory brainstem response is one of hearing assessment tools used in sudden onset sensorineural hearing loss. However, its findings may be false positive at early stages of the disorder, leading to unnecessary investigations and treatments. We report two cases of idiopathic sudden onset sensorineural hearing loss, which manifested in abnormal auditory brainstem response during the acute phase of illness. However, a complete recovery of auditory brainstem response was observed after treatment completion. Therefore, we suggest that auditory brainstem response should be performed reasonably, especially during the acute phase of sudden onset sensorineural hearing loss.

Nagły idiopatyczny niedosłuch czuciowo-nerwowy jest stanem nagłym w otorynolaryngologii. Pomimo częstego występowania badanie i leczenie tego zaburzenia nadal budzą kontrowersje. Jednym z narzędzi diagnostycznych stosowanych u pacjentów z nagłym idiopatycznym niedosłuchem czuciowo-nerwowym jest pomiar słuchowych potencjałów wywołanych pnia mózgu. Badanie to może jednak dawać wyniki fałszywie dodatnie we wczesnych stadiach choroby, prowadząc w konsekwencji do niepotrzebnych dalszych badań i prób leczenia. W pracy przedstawiono dwa przypadki nagłego idiopatycznego niedosłuchu czuciowo-nerwowego objawiającego się nieprawidłowościami w zapisie słuchowych potencjałów wywołanych pnia mózgu podczas ostrej fazy choroby. Po zakończeniu leczenia stwierdzono całkowite przywrócenie słuchu w badaniu słuchowych potencjałów wywołanych pnia mózgu. Autorzy zalecają wykonywanie tego badania w sposób racjonalny, w szczególności podczas ostrej fazy choroby.
