Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is worldwide public health problem with a rapidly expanding disease burden. In CKD, auditory damage occurs both at the sensory organ and the neuronal level. The incidence of hearing loss has been found to be higher in patients suffering from CKD as compared to the general population in various studies conducted so far. Bazzi et al. reported hearing loss in 77% of the CKD patients tested by them.
