The thorough study of the patients with unilateral acousma is very important, mainly when patients are in the fourth decade of life, without demonstrable auditive pathology and asymmetric neurosensorial hypoacusia. It is indispensable in these cases to discard the cochlear origin or not of the auditive damage. The computerized axial tomography of the petrous portions of the temporal bone, or the mastoideal X- rays in different views, will define if there are vascular tumours or abnormalities.
