© Istanbul Medeniyet University Faculty of Medicine.Auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (ANSD) is a hearing disorder which characterized with normal outer hair cell function but disrupted neural synchrony in the afferent auditory pathway. CAPOS (cerebellar ataxia, areflexia, pes cavus, optic atrophy, and sensorineural hearing loss) syndrome can manifest itself with ANSD and this rare situation and audiological rehabilitation outcomes have not well documented in the literature. We aim to present a cochlear implant user subject with CAPOS syndrome and ANSD. A 14-year-old girl diagnosed with ANSD and CAPOS syndrome. She received unilateral cochlear implant (CI). Her hearing sensitivity and speech perception abilities have been improved with CI. Also, she has a good music perception ability measured with the Turkish version of Clinical Assessment of Music Perception Test. After detailed audiological evaluations, CI could be a good option for patients who have ANSD and CAPOS syndrome.
