For an early case of hydrops—found in a person in his 30's or 40's or earlier—some of the classical auditory findings are shown in Figure 1. This chart shows a number of hearing tests made on the same patient at different times. The seven air-conduction threshold curves show a wide variation. The hearing threshold has fluctuated up and down at varying periods. This is the usual fluctuation seen in an early case of hydrops. The bone-conduction threshold fluctuates along with the air-conduction one. It is classically a low-tone hearing loss. Along with this,
