Asymmetric hearing: Asymmetric hearing may be due to multiple etiologies: infectious, Meniere's, membrane rupture, autoimmune, medication, tumor. An audiogram followed by an ABR (auditory brainstem response) with asymmetry is reasonable. An MRI may be warranted pending evaluation also. Acoustic neuromas are rare even with the associated symptoms however should be evaluated.
