Symmetric sloping high-frequency sensorineural hearing loss (pure-tone audiometry)

Pure-tone audiometry shows symmetric responses between the ears . There is evidence of bilateral symmetric sloping high-frequency sensorineural hearing loss. Lt = left; Rt = right; O= air conduction, unmasked, right ear; < = bone conduction, unmasked, right ear; X = air conduction, unmasked, left ear; > = bone conduction, unmasked, left ear.
