Abstract

WELCOME BACK to an ongoing feature article that challenges the audiologist to identify a diagnosis for a case study based on a listing and explanation of the nonaudiology and audiology test battery. It is important to recognize that a hearing loss or a vestibular issue may be a manifestation of a systemic illness. Being part of the diagnostic and treatment “team” is a crucial role of the audiologist. Securing the definitive diagnosis is rewarding for the audiologist and enhances patient hearing and balance health care and, often, quality of life.
