Abstract

Unilateral peripheral vestibular deficit can occur from a different etiology including viral infection, trauma, ear surgery or idiopathic. Patients with sudden unilateral vestibular deficit usually complain of whirling vertigo, postural imbalance and ipsilesional lateropulsion, which gradually recover over a few weeks by vestibular compensation mechanism. Vestibular rehabilitation therapy has been accepted as helpful exercise based training program with strong evidence for acceleration of vestibular compensation in unilateral vestibular deficit. Here the authors described the current issue regarding vestibular rehabilitation in unilateral vestibular hypofunction from the informative literature review.
