Disorders of the Vestibular System

The chapter ends with a full discussion of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, vestibular neuritis, and Meniere’s disease or endolymphatic hydrops with attention paid to their pathophysiology, major clinical features, major laboratory findings, and principles of management and prognosis.

Vestibular Neuritis With Minimal Canal Paresis: Characteristics and Clinical Implication

Patients with minimal canal paresis (canal pareis <25%) show similar clinical manifestations as conventional vestibular neuritis patients, but have faster recovery of symptoms and a higher incidence of recovery nystagmus.

Clinical implication of ocular torsion in peripheral vestibulopathy

The OT abnormality is remarkable during the acute phase of VN, whereas it might not be remarkable immediately after a vertigo attack in MD, and this finding can be used to differentiate MD and Vn, especially when no definite hearing loss is seen or VN recurs.

Inner Ear Infections

Primary inner ear infections are usually congenitally acquired, mostly of viral etiology and associated with sensorineural hearing loss, and Cytomegalovirus is the prototype primary inner ear infection.

Common and uncommon audio-vestibular findings in COVID-19 patients

A study on COVID-19 patients who reported audio-vestibular complaints and the relationship between the pandemic and the audiovestibular system found hearing loss was found in 43.8% of patients in comparison to vertigo that represented 40.6% of cases.

An age-related investigation of audio-vestibular symptoms in individuals with Covid-19 positive

Symptoms such as dizziness, tinnitus, hoarseness, swallowing difficulty, fever, and decreased sound tolerance can often be seen in the later days of COVID-19 disease.

Investigation of seasonal variability of vestibular neuronitis.

The present study found minimal evidence of seasonality in the incidence of vestibular neuronitis, which is consistent with studies ofSeasonality observed for other inner-ear disorders thought to be virally mediated.

Treatment of SSNHL in the COVID-19 pandemic – time for changes

The general use of standard treatment of SSNHL with steroids and HBO according to internationally approved guidelines should ensure safe medical procedures due to epidemiological restrictions.



Vestibular Neuritis

The clinical and pathological features are consistent with a viral etiology and the atrophic changes in the vestibular nerves are usually sufficiently severe to create Vestibular test abnormalities.

The clinical and pathological features are consistent with a viral etiology and the atrophic changes in the vestibular nerves are usually sufficiently severe to create Vestibular test abnormalities.

The Three Faces of Vestibular Ganglionitis

Evidence is presented that temporal bone and clinical evidence that common syndromes of recurrent vertigo are caused by a viral infection of the vestibular ganglion and histopathologic and radiologic changes were consistent with a viral inflammation ofganglion cells in cases of Meniere's disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, and Vestibular neuronitis.

Vestibular Neuritis: Clinical-Pathologic Correlation

Corticosteroids for the treatment of idiopathic acute vestibular dysfunction (vestibular neuritis).

There is currently insufficient evidence from these trials to support the administration of corticosteroids to patients with idiopathic acute vestibular dysfunction, and it is recommended that future studies should include health-related quality of life and symptom-based outcome measures, in addition to objective measures of Vestibular improvement, such as caloric testing and electronystagmography.

It is reasonable to treat otherwise healthy individuals who present within 3 days of onset and to withhold steroids from those who are at higher risk of complications, although studies suggest that a course of oral steroids accelerates the recovery of vestibular function.

Vestibular disorders in children

The clinical signs of vestibular deficit and the most frequent aetiologies of vertigo and dizziness in children are detailed, which has been helpful in determining the best diagnostic procedure and therapy for vertigo in children.

Prednisone Treatment for Vestibular Neuritis

Prednisone therapy might enhance earlier recovery but does not improve the long-term prognosis of VN, and both clinical and laboratory parameters in VN are not correlated.

The spectrum of vertigo in children.

Peripheral causes of vertigo, eg, otitis media, were noted most commonly and ear, nose, and throat clinic patients with adequate follow-up were improved or asymptomatic at the time of their last visit.

Lipoprotein (a) and acute‐phase response in patients with vestibular neuronitis

Background  Vestibular neuronitis (VN) is a relatively common condition characterized by the acute onset of vertigo, nausea and vomiting, in the absence of auditory or central nervous system
