Endolymphatic hydrops is believed to be underlying pathophysiology of Meniere’s disease. The degree of endolymphatic hydrops observed by MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) in patients with Meniere’s disease offers a new method to study the progression of Meniere’s disease. There have been multiple attempts to diagnose Meniere’s disease with the help of radiologic tests including MRI in Korea. We describe a case report of a patient with Meniere’s who showed changes of endolymphatic sac in MRI after endolymphatic sac decompression.
