Abstract


Meniere’s disease (MD) is a chronic disorder of the inner ear that is characterized by intermittent attacks of loud tinnitus, a sense of pressure in the ear, vertigo and progressive permanent hearing loss in one or both ears. Anxiety and dizziness occur as co-morbid symptoms in a larger percentage of patients than would be expected from chance alone. The individual profile of Meniere’s disease in different patients makes it difficult to diagnose on the basis of symptomatology alone. The impact of Meniere’s disease on qual- ity of life has highlighted the importance of an additional approach to support the diagnosis andintervention of Meniere’s disease. In this study, we discussed about the interface between Meniere’s disease, its audiological manifestations and psycho-social factors influencing the Quality of life.
