Rinne's test shows that air conduction is better than bone conduction in both ears whilst Weber's test lateralises to the left side.

The answer is left conductive deafness which doesn't make any sense to me?

My understanding is that as the air conduction is better than bone conduction in both ears in the Rinne's test - this means that there is no conductive hearing loss so the issue must be sensorineural.
And because the Weber's test lateralises to the left and in sensorineural deafness, it usually lateralises to the unaffected side thus it should be a right sensorineural deafness?

Could someone explain where I've gone wrong here, please?
