We present a cochlear implant (CI) adult with active middle ear disease (MED). A 55-year-old Saudi female had sudden hearing loss (HL) since she was 18 years old (sensorineural HL). The patient developed MED after a period of CI programming stabilization that negatively affected the CI function. This case study clarifies these adverse effects on subjective hearing and objective CI measures (impedance and electrical compound action potential). Reprogramming the CI is recommended during the active MED and monitoring the middle ear status for cochlear-implanted children when noticing changes of objective CI measures accompanied with decreased overall performance.
