Abstract: 

Cogan's syndrome (CS) is an immune-mediated disease characterized by ocular in-flammation and audiovestibular dysfunction with or without vasculitis or other systemic manifestations (1). Audiovestibular disease that is difficult to treat can lead to the loss of hearing (2). By a timely recognition and initiation of glucocorticoid therapy at the onset of the disease, poor outcomes, especially complete hearing loss, could sometimes be prevented (2). Certain patients may require long-term corticosteroid therapy because of recurrent hearing loss during attempts to taper the prednisone dose (3). We report Cogan’s syndrome in a 14 year-old-girl with marked deterioration of hearing power fol-lowing tapering of corticosteroid therapy.
