Abstract

Twenty-one children (seven males, 14 females; age range 5-15 years) affected by unilateral vestibular neuronitis were followed-up for 5 years. In 47.7% of cases (ten children), vestibular neuronitis followed upper respiratory tract viral infection. Subjective and associated symptoms disappeared completely after 1 year, positional and positioning nystagmus and unilateral canal paresis after 2 years, except for 5 and 14% of cases, respectively. The most interesting results concerning prognosis were obtained comparing the maximum speeds of the slow components (MAX SSCs) of affected and healthy sides in the different follow-up periods. Statistically significant differences were found in the first year (P <0.0001 in the first week, P <0.01 at 3 months, P <0.04 at 1 year), while at 2 years differences were no longer significant (P = n.s.). In addition, the complete recovery of labyrinthine function was proportional (P = n.s.) to the disappearance of subjective and associated symptoms and of positional and positioning nystagmus until 1 year from onset of vestibular neuronitis.
