Meniere’s disease and various types of vertigo in children

Abstract

Vertigo in children is rarer than in adults and the examiner in cases showing these symptoms must rely on the parents’ or relatives’ observations and details. Besides the equilibrium disorders caused by hereditary malabsorptions or lesions in the peripheral and central vestibular structures, we know of typical diseases, associated with vertigo and hearing problems, that develop during childhood. One of them is Menière’s disease. Careful examinations are necessary to differentiate these illnesses from other vestibular disturbances accompanied with vertigo.
Neuro-otologic examination in children, especially small children, is more difficult than in adults. The reasons are the time-consuming examination necessary in the case of children and by problems connected with a plethora of troublesome individual tests. The paper gives an overview of Meniere’s disease and related vestibular disturbances during childhood.
