Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systematic disease characterized by joint inflammation, and it has a prevalence of 1% within the general population. This inflammatory process has the potential to directly invade the auditory system resulting in a variety of different hearing losses. This poster will present audiological and treatment data on two patients with RA. The cases along with supporting research will create the opportunity to increase awareness, discuss diagnostic protocols, and ways to counsel patients for success.
