Hearing and Balance — In General Term

  • Yasuko Arai


A 50-year-old lady experienced imbalance during her office work. She then had vomiting and nausea and had GOO-tinnitus in the right ear. Later, she could not move her head at all because any head movement induced rotatory vertigo for four hours. The next day, she woke up as usual but encountered tinnitus, hearing impairment, and fullness in the right ear. She recalled a similar experience several years before. [a typical example of Ménièr’s disease attack]
