A 56 year old man was referred by his general practitioner with a 10 year history of progressive hearing loss and tinnitus, mainly in his right ear. He did not describe otalgia or dizziness. After thinking about it more carefully, however, he admitted that he occasionally felt slightly unsteady but had attributed this to tiredness. His medical history was otherwise unremarkable, and there was no family history of deafness.
