What is Cogan's syndrome?

  • Cogan's syndrome: A disorder primarily involving eye inflammation and hearing impairment and dizziness. Complete deafness usually occurs within a couple of years. The disorder is caused by inflammation of the arteries in the ear. Sometimes arteries in other parts of the body may also be affected e.g. skin, kidneys and other organs.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Cogan's syndrome as a "rare disease".
