Discover possible complications of labyrinthitis

The most recurrent complication of labyrinthitis is permanent hearing loss, especially in children who developed the disease from a bacterial infection, such as meningitis . It is estimated that out of five children, at least one will develop some type of hearing loss, which can be partial or complete.

If hearing is severely affected, cochlear implants may be necessary. These devices are inserted into the ears to help improve the patient’s hearing.
