A 61-year-old previously healthy woman developed progressive hearing and visual loss over a period of 2–3 months prior to admission. Her medical/surgical history was remarkable for a left hip arthroplasty 11 years ago requiring revision approximately 6 months prior to admission. After dislocating the revised hip, she re-presented to her surgeon and underwent a closed reduction. Several weeks following the reduction, the patient began having polyuria and symptoms of hearing and vision loss along with numbness in her extremities and abdominal region.
