A 37-year-old male developed severe sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) following drip intravenous pyelography with iohexol. We suggest that this hearing disturbance might have been caused by a delayed allergic reaction to iohexol or to its toxicity, because hearing loss developed several hours after the infusion of iohexol. No improvement in ...

Substances that induce CD ...
