Taking a Good History is Crucial in Ménière’s Disease

Ménière’s disease is an endolymphatic hydroplasty that develops in the inner ear as a result of overproduction or inadequate reabsorption of endolymph. This hydrops is clinically characterised by vertigo in the form of attacks on the affected side, sensorineural hearing loss showing fluctuations at low to medium frequencies, tinnitus and fullness. The duration of the attack is between 20min and 24h.
