Recurrent vestibulopathy: third review.

Abstract

The term "recurrent vestibulopathy" is used to distinguish patients with multiple episodes of vertigo of duration varying from about 5 minutes to 24 hours, without auditory or neurological symptoms or signs. About 70% retain the original diagnosis on mean follow-up of both 5.5 and 8.5 years, while the balance (at both intervals) convert either to Meniere's Disease or benign postural vertigo. We think that periodic reduction of afferent discharge activity in one vestibular nerve is the mechanism of the episodes, and virus the probable cause.
