Clinical History

A 25-year-old woman with a history of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) presented to an outside institution with the complaint of sudden-onset left-sided hearing loss. The patient was diagnosed with sinusitis and a middle ear infection. When the symptoms failed to resolve after a course of oral antibiotics, an audiogram was obtained, revealing the presence of profound left-sided sensorineural hearing loss. Over the ensuing weeks, the patient developed dizziness, left-sided facial droop, left-sided facial numbness, decreased taste over the anterior aspect of the tongue, and worsening hoarseness.
