Labyrinthitis

Ear and Dizziness Centers logo

What are some of the common diagnoses that can cause vertigo?

Labyrinthitis
Inflammation in the inner ear can result from bacterial middle ear infections or, more commonly, from viral infections. Labyrinthitis can cause rapid progression of vertigo and possibly hearing loss. The term “labyrinthitis” is also occasionally used in a generic way — to indicate that a patient’s symptoms appear to be on the basis of an unspecified inner ear disorder.
