Autoimmune disorders can affect hearing loss.
Autoimmune disorders that can affect hearing loss include Cogan’s syndrome, relapsing polychondritis, polyarteritis nodose (PAN), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), ulcerative colitis (UC), Sjögren’s Syndrome, Wegener’s granulomatosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Otolaryngologists can utilize Immco’s expertise in diagnosing autoimmune disorders. The best tests, such as the 68-kD antigen, are utilized by our immunologists to help you determine if there is a relationship between systemic autoimmune diseases (SAD), Autoimmune Inner Ear Disease (AIED), and sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL).
