Vestibular Neuronitis

Vestibular neuronitis is a condition characterized as disequilibrium or vertigo originating from the balance nerves that is not associated with hearing loss.


Vestibular neuronitis (also referred to as vestibular neuritis) is a viral infection involving the inner ear, also called the labyrinth, which causes disruption to the peripheral vestibular (balance) system. Vestibular neuronitis is very similar to labyrinthitis without the hearing loss that occurs with labyrinthitis.
