Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSHL), which is a common and frequently encountered disease, is considered to be a medical emergency in otolaryngology. The prevalence of SSHL is increasing in China. The pathogenesis of SSHL is not clear yet. Microcirculatory disorder of inner ear is considered as one of the most important causes of SSHL. In recent years, several reports have found the levels of serum lipids were changed in patients affected by SSHL. The relationship between SSHL and serum lipids was reviewed to provide new ideas for the diagnosis and treatment of SSHL.
