Noise Trauma(Exposure to loud noise),
Head injury(causing injury to the ear)
Inner Ear Tumours,
Immune-mediated inner ear disease,
Vascular compromise of the inner ear due to blockage( thrombosis, embolus), reduced blood flow, or spasm of blood vesssels,
Iron Deficiency Anemia:It increases the risk for sudden deafness,
Reactivation of syphilis in HIV-infected patient,
Ototoxic drugs (eg, aminoglycosides, vancomycin, cisplatin, furosemide, ethacrynic acid); these mostly cause hearing loss over a longer time period but can rarely present as a sudden loss),
