Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 50-year-old female patient who complains of muffled hearing on her left ear and vertigo after falling from a bicycle. Computed tomography indicates left temporal bone's nondisplaced longitudinal fracture. Moreover, high-dose steroids were prescribed to lessen swelling and inflammation of the cochlear membranes.
