Vincristine, adriamycin, and dexamethasone (VAD) chemotherapy protocol is first-choice treatment in newly diagnosed multiple myeloma patients in many centers. Sudden hearing loss associated with vincristine therapy is a rarely observed event in the VAD protocol. We describe a 69-year old male patient diagnosed with multiple myeloma 7 months ago who developed sudden bilateral hearing loss related to vincristine therapy. This uncommon adverse effect of vincristine is discussed and the literature reviewed.
