It is a disorder of the inner ear which is characterized by episodes of hearing loss and fullness in one ear, tinnitus and vertigo. This is caused by increased pressure of the inner ear fluid. If not treated timely, Meniere’s disease can lead to progressive hearing loss. Meniere’s disease usually affects one ear but it may be bilateral in 15% of cases. Treatment involves dietary restrictions and medical management, and in intractable cases, intratympanic gentanycin injections or surgery may be required.
