Vestibular neuritis in a child with otitis media with effusion; clinical application of vestibular evoked myogenic potential by bone-conducted sound.

Author information

Department of Otolaryngology, University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.


Vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) has been applied for patients with vestibulo-cochlear disorders. The impairment of the sound transmission due to middle ear pathology affects VEMP results. In children, otitis media with effusion (OME) is well documented and it is difficult to apply conventional VEMP in such cases. To overcome the attenuation of stimulation due to middle ear pathology, VEMP by bone-conducted sound has been developed. We report a 3-year-old girl with vestibular neuritis and OME as a representative case of clinical application of VEMP by bone-conducted sound. VEMP by bone-conducted sound can be an alternative method to elicit vestibular-dependent potential.
