Neurotologic Findings in Patients with Superficial Siderosis

Superficial siderosis (SS) is a rare disease caused by chronic iron deposition in neuronal tissue due to repeated bleeding in subarachnoid space (1). SS was first described almost a century ago. Since that time a number of case reports and series have been published, yielding a total of 270 cases as widespread use of magnetic resonance image (MRI) (2). Although both the vestibulocochlear nerve (CN VIII) and the cerebellum are common site of iron deposition, which can cause not only sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) but also dizziness and imbalance, most of previous reports mainly described SNHL (3) (4). Audiologic findings such as SNHL have been well recognized, however, neurotologic features including vestibular findings are less well-characterized. The current study was designed to help provide additional information on which to neurotologic findings in this disease
