Background and Objectives:   In Meniere’s disease, the relationship between the vertigo attacks and prognosis of hearing remains unclear. Our study aimed to elucidate the possible role of recurrent vertigo in the prognosis of hearing in Meniere’s disease.
Materials and Methods:  
The medical records of 53 patients with definite Meniere’s disease over 2 years follow-up were analyzed retrospectively and we analyzed the changes of vertigo and hearing over time.
While 49% of patients who were treated conservatively experienced recurrent vertigo attacks, 40% of patients did not have an episode of vertigo during the follow-up. Worsening of hearing and fluctuation were found in about 30% and 26%, respectively. There is no obvious coincidence in the course of vertigo and hearing.
The prognosis of hearing dose not depend on the the presence of recurrent vertigo in Meniere’s disease.
