Post-acute Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) syndrome is currently an emerging condition, however, there is only a little research information on these post-COVID-19 symptoms, especially auditory manifestations, which have been in the limelight recently among the COVID-19 recovered patients. Tinnitus and conductive/sensorineural hearing loss were the most commonly reported manifestations post-COVID-19, while vertigo, otitis externa, and ear pain were the least reported. Here, we have discussed relevant auditory manifestations in theoretical and practical terms; considering the mechanisms of causation, published literature on auditory involvement in patients post-COVID-19, and during the active stage of the disease, and whether this could result in long-term complications.
