ABSTRACT
From retrospective review of medical charts of patients diagnosed as bilateral vestibulopathy during the past seven years, this study investigated incidence, etiologies, symptoms, vestibular function test findings; electronystagmography (ENG) studies, rotatory chair testing, and posturography, and post-vestibular rehabilitation (VRT) follow-up results. we have an incidence of 1.2% of all the 3423 patients who have undergone vestibular function test. Ototoxicity was the first known etiology and we had a lot of patients of idiopathic bilateral vestibulopathy. Most patients in our study had experiences of sudden onset vertigo rather than slowly progressive symptoms. The most frequently complained symptoms were dysequilibrium and oscillopsia. Post-VRT courses were better in patients whose initial gain of vestibulo-ocular reflex(VOR) was high or ascending type.
