Viral Meningitis

I had a four month old in this morning for a hearing screening.  The referral 
noted viral meningitis as the cause.

The TEOAE's were robust.

Anybody have any idea what the incidence of neural loss is in kids who have had
viral menigitis?  I might expect some temporary loss from sequelae (perhaps an 
8th N neuritis) but how about percentages of youngsters with retrocochlear 
losses secondary to viral meningitis?
