Meniere’s disease can be a rather tricky diagnosis due to disagreement on the exact pathogenesis and the symptom overlap with other. Precise history taking and otoneurological examination confirmed the diagnosis of Lermoyez’s syndrome. A year-old male had been suffering from recurrent. Lermoyez syndrome is an infrequent disease of the auditory and vestibular system. It is likely to be caused by endolymphatic hydrops, and is.

On the basis of our findings and a review of the literature, we conclude that the major cause of Lermoyez’ syndrome may be an abnormal flexibility of the ductus reuniens. The higher the pressure of the cochlear endolymph, the worse the cochlear symptoms.
These findings indicate that she had endolymphatic hydrops in both ears, suggesting ayndrome simultaneous changes in bilateral cochlear and vestibular function induce Lermoyez’s syndrome. Meanwhile, both tinnitus and hearing impairment disappeared after the sudden onset of vertigo. Further investigation is required.

You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. A sudden pressure increase in the saccule induces an abrupt change of the macula nerve action potential, lowering the threshold of nystagmus and dizziness and leading to an episode of vertigo. It seemed that decreasing blood viscosity by defibrinogenation allowed blood to rush into the labyrinth, causing vertigo but at the same time improving hearing. In case 1, a year-old female, dehydration with glycerol or furosemide induced nystagmus and improved bilateral hearing and the gain of the vestibulo-ocular reflex, while overhydration with drinking water impaired bilateral hearing with disappearance of nystagmus.
Further increased pressure of the endolymphatic space would cause the ductus reuniens to open suddenly with a pop before rupture of Reissner’s membrane, as noted by Lawrence and MaCabe in Meniere’s disease. It was during this period of time that Lermoyez decided to specialize in the field of otorhinolaryngology. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The following year, he traveled to Vienna in order to study with famed otologist Adam Politzer In case 3, a year-old female, which we already reported, endolymphatic collapse in both ears may have changed bilateral inner ear function, resulting in Lermoyez’s syndrome.
Marcel Lermoyez is credited for establishing otolaryngology as a specialized medical field in France. A year-old male had been suffering from recurrent episodes of tinnitus, hearing syhdrome and dizziness. Information related to the author. Simultaneosly, the tinnitus disappears and hearing is restored.
Vestibular function in Lermoyez syndrome at attack.
First, low-grade tinnitus and hearing loss persisted for a year. Two cases of bilateral Lermoyez’s syndrome and one case of unilateral Synrrome syndrome are reported. In he published Rhinologie, otologie, laryngologie: He made contributions in the research of diseases such as tuberculosis of the earotosclerosisand otogenous meningitis.
Languages Deutsch Edit links. At the pre-stage of vertigo, he noticed the severity of tinnitus and hearing impairment was used to increase.
In he founded the journal Annales des Maladies des Lefmoyez et du Larynx. The patients had recurrent episodes of vertigo with improvement of hearing or tinnitus, which is characteristic is Lermoyez’s syndrome.
In this case, slowly developing insufficiency of the inner ear blood supply may have caused the gradual hearing loss. We proposed that there are syndromd types of Lermoyez’s syndrome, bilateral cases 1 and 3 and unilateral case 2.
