The audiologic diagnosis of pseudohypacusis continues to challenge the clinical audiologist. The introduction of otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) to the test repertoire of the audiologist may prove valuable in the evaluation of pseudohypacusis. This report highlights five cases in which transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) were used to cross-check the validity of subjective audiologic thresholds. Relationships of TEOAEs to other objective measures of audiologic threshold are shown to substantiate the value of the procedure for the diagnosis of pseudohypacusis. Suggestions for the use of OAEs in cases of pseudohypacusis are discussed.
