OBJECTIVE: We report a case of deafness occurring in a temporal context of an influenza vaccination in a 79-year-old woman.

METHODS: Case report and review of the literature on influenza causing deafness.

RESULTS: A 79-year-old woman with normal hearing developed acute bilateral sensorineural hearing loss two days after a seasonal influenza vaccination, other obvious reasons for acute hearing loss were excluded.

CONCLUSION: This patient appears to be the first reported case of bilateral deafness following a trivalent seasonal influenza vaccination.
