Scrub typhus, which is caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi, is an acute febrile illness characterized by fever, rash, and myalgia. Recently, its incidence in Korea has increased. Many cases of scrub typhus with central nervous system involvement have been reported, while cases with hearing loss are rare. We experienced a case of scrub typhus with reversible hearing loss. To our knowledge, this is the first case confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging.
