Abstract

Vestibular schwannoma (VS) can have various symptoms and almost half of the patients have balance problems. Some patients with VS can suffer from recurrent vertigo mimicking Meniere's disease. We present the case of a 61-year-old male patient who was suffering from recurrent vertigo due to VS while symptoms improved by chemical labyrinthectomy with gentamicin. We consider that chemical labyrinthectomy can be an option in the treatment of patients with recurrent vertigo for VS.
