PMID:  1449186     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Recent clinical studies, experimental research, and various testing techniques in otoimmunology have resulted in presentation of the synonymous terms autoimmune sensorineural hearing loss, autoimmune inner ear disease, immune-mediated sensorineural hearing loss, and immune-mediated inner ear disease or disorder. The development of this terminology and the clinical presentation of this disease as well as whether it is really a distinct clinical entity are discussed. Laboratory tests for immune-mediated inner ear disease are presented along with a discussion of progress being made in the growing field of otoimmunology.
