Ototoxicity is a well-known complication of certain chemotherapeutic agents. There have been few reports of ototoxicity following administration of vincristine. However, vinblastine has seldom been implicated causing ototoxicity. We report a case of sudden bilateral hearing loss in a 32-year-old male patient of classical Hodgkin's lymphoma following standard adriamycin, bleomycin, vinblastine, dacarbazine chemotherapy.
