Autoimmune inner ear disease is a well described entity. We report a case of sudden-onset sensorineural hearing loss in association with psoriatic arthritis, which has not been reported in the literature. The case satisfies the criteria for the presumptive diagnosis of autoimmune hearing loss. A high index of suspicion, with early diagnosis and aggressive treatment with steroids and/or immunosuppressive agents, is essential to prevent irreversible hearing loss. The condition of psoriatic arthritis must be added to the pantheon of autoimmune diseases that can lead to sensorineural hearing loss.
