Goin et al. [1] operated on 16 ears with Mondini’s anomaly and obtained satisfactory hearing improvement in 4 of them. Sadé and Yaniv [2] reported on vertigo which started in childhood and suggested that some of the hearing loss with vertigo in children was due to Ménière’s disease. Recently, Levenson et al. [3] proposed the existence of the large vestibular aqueduct syndrome in children who have downward fluctuating hearing losses.
