Semin Hear 2018; 39: 229-242 DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1666815The purpose of this study was to report the prevalence of vestibular impairment (VI) in children (n = 2,528) referred for complete vestibular testing because of balance disorders (BD) or hearing loss (H). A VI was shown in 51.5% of the children tested (1,304/2,528). For BD (e.g., vertigo, dizziness, instability, delay in posturomotor development), VI was found in 36.5% (n = 379/1,037). The most frequent causes of BD with VI included inner ear malformation (13.5%), delay in posturomotor development (13.4%), hearing loss revealed with vertigo...

The arcuate foramen is an anatomic variant that is thought to arise from the ossification of the posterior atlanto-occipital membrane. Due to potential entrapment of the vertebral artery segment that traverses the foramen, vertebrobasilar ischemia might occur and the person may experience vertigo, headache, and/or neck pain.

Episodic dizziness is a highly prevalent symptom that has historically been a challenge for primary care physicians, neurologists, and otolaryngologists to accurately diagnosis and properly treat. With an array of diagnoses to consider, including benign positional vertigo, vestibular migraine, M énière disease, vertebrobasilar syndrome, and vestibular schwannoma, among others, considerable effort has been placed by otolaryngology and neurology societies to carefully examine the literature and generate clinical criteria and guidelines to aid the clinician and to standardize diagnostic algo rithms and treatment...

This study suggests that VM is a very common presentation to a tertiary balance disorders clinic, but there is little consensus in choice of initial management and vestibular rehabilitation is underutilized. This data may be valuable in informing the practice of neuro-otology as well as in the planning of future service provision.
