Hearing loss is one of the sequels that often happened as a result of congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection. Difficulties in diagnosing congenital CMV infection cause late detection of hearing loss which affects the patient's management and prognosis. We present three cases of hearing loss in infants with congenital CMV infection with other risk factors such as hyperbilirubinemia, low birth weight, premature birth, and ototoxic drug usage. The results of hearing assessment, imaging findings, and antiviral treatments are discussed. Hearing assessments in patient with congenital CMV infection should be checked routinely because hearing loss in this disease can be progressive and fluctuating.
