  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A case of head injury is reported because it presented such an unusual symptom as sudden, bilateral com-plete deafness.

An 11-year-old boy was involved in a traffic accident while riding on a bicycle. He was admitted immediate-ly after the accident in semicomatose state. The pupils were isocoric and pupillary light reflex was normal. Conjugate deviation to the right was seen. Oculo-cephalic response was absent. X-rays of his skull showed two linear fractures in the occipital bone.
