Cogan's syndrome is a rare, immune-mediated disorder characterized by chronic, bilateral vestibular-cochlear dysfunction and interstitial keratitis. We describe the first case of Cogan's syndrome that resolved with antiretroviral therapy in a patient with human immunodeficiency virus infection. Plausible disease mechanisms are discussed.
