Song Z, Ding Y, Sim N, Yun HJ, Feng J, Gu P, Geng X


Association between vestibular function and immune inflammatory response has garnered increasing interest. Immune responses can lead to anatomical or functional alterations of the vestibular system, and inflammatory reactions may impair hearing and balance. Vestibular disorders comprise a variety of conditions, such as vestibular neuritis, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, Meniere’s disease, vestibular migraine, posterior circulation ischemia, and bilateral vestibular disease. Moreover, some patients with autoimmune diseases develop vestibulocochlear symptom. This paper offers an overview of prevalent vestibular diseases and discusses associations between vestibular dysfunction and immune diseases.
