Generally sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is progressive and intractable. However, sudden SNHL (SSNHL) is curable and has various prognosis. The prognosis of SSNHL depends on a variety of risk factors including demographics, duration of hearing loss, associated symptoms, and audiogram characteristics. Presentation to a physician less than a week after onset of SSNHL also correlates with improved oddsof hearing recovery, with chances of complete hearing recovery decreasing after that time. Nevertheless we treated 3 patients with SSNHL more than 1 year passed after onset of disease. We did intratympanic steroid injection (lTSI) to them and they took low dose oral steroid for less than 3 weeks. They recovered his hearing threshold within normal range and have maintained unlil now.
