Nonionic low-osmolar contrast agents are considered safe for intravenous or intra-arterial administration and are used widely in the general population, as well as in patients on hemodialysis therapy. There are data limited to case reports for contrast-induced hearing loss; however, the ototoxicity induced by contrast agents in patients with chronic kidney disease has never been described. We report a case of permanent sensorineural deafness after abdominal aortic angiography with iopamidol in a woman with end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis therapy and review the literature relating to contrast use with the development of hearing impairment.
