Abstract:
Vestibular symptoms of vertigo, dizziness and dysequilibrium are common complaints which can be disabling both physically and psychologically. Routine examination of the ear nose and throat and neurological system are often normal in these patients. An accurate history and thorough clinical examination can provide a diagnosis in the majority of patients. However, in a subgroup of patients, vestibular function testing may be invaluable in arriving at a correct diagnosis and ultimately in the optimal treatment of these patients.; Literature review.; In this review we aim to highlight the new understanding and insight into the underlying pathophysiology of vestibular disorders which in conjunction with technological advancements have led to significant improvements in the clinical and laboratory evaluation of vestibular disease. The vestibular and balance assessment modalities which are available to help optimise the management of vestibular disease are also discussed.
