Understanding Vestibular Disorders

WHAT IS A VESTIBULAR DISORDER?

The vestibular system includes the parts of the inner ear and brain that process the sensory information involved with controlling blance and eye movements.  If disease or injury damages these processing areas, vestibular disorders can result.  Vestibular disorders can also result from or be worsened by genetic or environmental conditions, or occur for unknown reasons.

The most commonly diagnosed vestibular disorders include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), labyrinthitis or vestibular neuritis, Menier's disease, secondary endolymphatic hydrops, and perilymph fistula.  Vestibular disorders also include superior canal dehiscence, acoustic neuroma, ototoxicity, enlarged vestibular aqueduct, and mal de debarquement.  Other problems related to vestibular dysfunction include migraine associated vertigo and complications from autoimmune disorders and allergies.
