About the pathophysiology of acute unilateral vestibular deficit - vestibular neuritis (VN) or peripheral vestibulopathy (PVP)?
Denis Uffer & Stefan C A Hegemann
These results should remind us to be careful before jumping to quick conclusions about the pathogenetic nature of PVP. With any reason to question VN as the only cause of PVP, we should reconsider the treatment approach to PVP. If the cause probably or even possibly lies inside the vestibular labyrinth, an intratympanic steroid injection might prove to be a more effective measure, even in first-line treatment. If the etiology is unsure, a combination of systemic and intratympanic steroid treatment may be adequate.
