Abstract

A 48-year-old woman became totally deaf after a head injury. Magnetic resonance imaging showed bilateral contusions around the inferior colliculi and the brainstem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP) failed to show any abnormality. This case demonstrates that small, symmetrical, bilateral lesions around the inferior colliculi may cause deafness and may still be associated with a normal BAEP.
