Bilateral sudden sensorineural hearing loss is a rare otologic emergency and constitutes 0.44%-4.9% of overall sudden sensorineural hearing loss cases. Microvascular dysfunction secondary to systemic cardiovascular diseases, such as embolism, vasospasm, and hypercoagulability, is the main cause of non-idiopathic bilateral sudden sensorineural hearing loss. In this study, a case of bilateral sudden sensorineural hearing that occurred after angiographic embolization for treatment of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage was presented as a rare clinical condition.
