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.

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.
Simultaneosly, the tinnitus disappears and hearing is restored. A year-old male had been suffering from recurrent episodes of tinnitus, hearing loss and dizziness. 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. The stages of onset might be as follows: Already have an account? Register Already have an account?
The course of the symptoms were of interest.
Vestibular function in Lermoyez syndrome at attack.
Languages Deutsch Edit links. Retrieved from ” https: After the death of his son inLermoyez became completely withdrawn, remaining depressed until his death in This biography related to medicine in France is a stub. It seemed that decreasing blood viscosity by defibrinogenation allowed blood to rush into the labyrinth, causing vertigo but at the same time improving hearing. The patients had recurrent episodes of vertigo with improvement of hearing or tinnitus, which is characteristic is Lermoyez’s syndrome.
Further investigation is required. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
[Three cases of Lermoyez’s syndrome and its pathophysiology].
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. Views Read Edit View history. Then, the attacks of dizziness appeared. 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 lermiyez Meniere’s disease.
In he founded the journal Annales des Maladies des Oreilles et du Larynx. These findings indicate that she had endolymphatic hydrops in both ears, suggesting that simultaneous changes in bilateral cochlear and vestibular function induce Lermoyez’s syndrome.
It was during this period of time that Lermoyez decided to specialize in the field of otorhinolaryngology. Marcel Lermoyez 24 July — 1 February was a French otolaryngologist and surgeon who was a native of Cambrai.
Meanwhile, both tinnitus and hearing impairment disappeared after the sudden onset of vertigo. These symptoms reccurred with increasing frequency and severity. At the pre-stage of vertigo, he noticed the severity of tinnitus and hearing impairment was used to increase.
The following year, he traveled to Vienna in order to study with famed otologist Adam Politzer Information related to the author. This page was last edited on 30 Octoberat Marcel Lermoyez is credited for establishing otolaryngology as a specialized medical field in France.
This would cause tinnitus and hearing loss. 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.
We proposed that there are two types of Lermoyez’s syndrome, bilateral cases 1 and 3 and unilateral case 2. Precise history taking and otoneurological examination confirmed the diagnosis of Lermoyez’s syndrome. In he published Rhinologie, otologie, laryngologie: June 05, accepted: On the other hand, patients 2, a year-old male, experienced a vertigo attack with improvement of unilateral hearing after defibrinogenation therapy.

Two cases of bilateral Lermoyez’s syndrome and one case of unilateral Lermoyez’s syndrome are reported. First, low-grade tinnitus and hearing loss persisted for a year.
In this case, slowly developing insufficiency of the inner ear blood supply may have caused the gradual hearing loss. Journal home Journal issue About the journal. He made contributions in the research of diseases such as tuberculosis of the earotosclerosisand otogenous meningitis.
