If, prior to the Tepezza infusion treatment, you had no history of hearing loss at all, and no accident or event happened that could have caused otologic symptoms, then it is reasonable to suspect that hearing loss is an adverse effect of the Tepezza treatment.
The question is more nuanced in case you already had preexisting hearing loss signs and symptoms when you started the Tepezza infusion treatment.
Should this be the case, you need to observe and document how the adverse effects of the Tepezza infusion treatment manifest in the aggravation of your preexisting condition or in the development of new otologic symptoms.
In order to file a Tepezza claim, you will need to be able to provide medical records and other types of medical documentation that prove the development of hearing loss signs and symptoms following the Tepezza infusion treatment.
As a general rule, it is highly recommended that an overall health assessment is done before the start of any major treatment process, with special attention to the health risks the new treatment’s manufacturer warns for.
