Patients with vitiligo at high risk of sensorineural hearing loss
Vitiligo is a frequent depigmenting condition caused by autoimmune melanocyte loss. Some data shows that melanocytes in the auditory system are involved in the illness process. However, the link between vitiligo and sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is yet unknown.
A new study data to date suggests a link of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) with vitiligo. The findings point to the need of audiologic evaluation in the early detection and management of hearing loss in vitiligo patients.
