Vertigo and fluctuating hearing-loss : Differential diagnosis: Ménière's disease, migraine, and psychogenic vertigo.
Summary of "Vertigo and fluctuating hearing-loss : Differential diagnosis: Ménière's disease, migraine, and psychogenic vertigo."
We present the case of a female patient suffering from recurrent vertigo and low-frequency hearing loss who was admitted for inpatient treatment with the diagnosis of Ménière's disease. After evaluation of all diagnostic examinations, including psychosomatic evaluation, a diagnosis of vestibular migraine with accompanying psychogenic vertigo could be confirmed and was treated accordingly. Neurotologic findings and the corresponding literature are reported.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A disease of the inner ear (LABYRINTH) that is characterized by fluctuating SENSORINEURAL HEARING LOSS; TINNITUS; episodic VERTIGO; and aural fullness. It is the most common form of endolymphatic hydrops.
Hearing Loss, Central
Hearing loss due to disease of the AUDITORY PATHWAYS (in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM) which originate in the COCHLEAR NUCLEI of the PONS and then ascend bilaterally to the MIDBRAIN, the THALAMUS, and then the AUDITORY CORTEX in the TEMPORAL LOBE. Bilateral lesions of the auditory pathways are usually required to cause central hearing loss. Cortical deafness refers to loss of hearing due to bilateral auditory cortex lesions. Unilateral BRAIN STEM lesions involving the cochlear nuclei may result in unilateral hearing loss.
Diagnostic Techniques, Otological
Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases of the ear or of hearing disorders or demonstration of hearing acuity or loss.
Hearing Loss, Noise-induced
Hearing loss due to exposure to explosive loud noise or chronic exposure to sound level greater than 85 dB. The hearing loss is often in the frequency range 4000-6000 hertz.
Migraine With Aura
A subtype of migraine disorder, characterized by recurrent attacks of reversible neurological symptoms (aura) that precede or accompany the headache. Aura may include a combination of sensory disturbances, such as blurred VISION; HALLUCINATIONS; VERTIGO; NUMBNESS; and difficulty in concentrating and speaking. Aura is usually followed by features of the COMMON MIGRAINE, such as PHOTOPHOBIA; PHONOPHOBIA; and NAUSEA. (International Classification of Headache Disorders, 2nd ed. Cephalalgia 2004: suppl 1)
Abstract The clinical diagnosis of migraine associated vertigo may be difficult because it shares features with some other clinical conditions. This communication presents a systematic review on the...
A retrospective study to investigate the clinical epidemiological characteristics of vertigo was carried out on 187 patients with vertigo. A clinical history for each patient was recorded precisely ab...
Vertigo is a common complaint in medicine. The most common causes of vertigo are benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, vestibular neuritis, Meniere's syndrome, and vascular disorders. Vertigo of vascu...
Migraine disorders are more prevalent among women than men. The ovarian neurosteroids play an important role in this sex difference by modulating neurotransmitter systems involving migraine pathogenes...
Within years the incidence of syphilis has increased in Denmark. The current case describes a homosexual man with a sudden onset of bilateral sensorinerual hearing loss and tinnitus along with a unive...
Do migrainous vertigo patients have more pathology in their vestibular system than migraine patients without vertigo? The aim of this study is to compare the vestibular system of migraine...
Disequilibrium between acid and base in the inner ear was suggested to be an important factor leading to hearing impairment associated with SLC26A4 mutations. For acid-base homeostasis in...
Hearing impairment is one of the most common disabilities in veterans. The decreased ability to communicate is troubling in itself, but the strong association of hearing loss with functio...
Aim: To verify how much of the orientation provided at diagnosis and hearing aid fitting are retained by new hearing aid users and analyze whether age, degree of hearing loss, academic and...
This study evaluates whether a 2 hour group session, "The Living Well with Hearing Loss Workshop," can successfully teach hard of hearing people how to best use hearing aids and a variety...
