Labyrinthal Hemorrhage

Hemorrhage Labyrinth


Presentation

  • Two days prior to presentation, the vertigo had worsened in severity and was associated with one episode of nausea and vomiting.[neurology.org]
  • CASE REPORT: Patient SMU, a 72-years-old woman, presented at the ambulatory with dizziness, vomiting, aural plenitude, and humming in her left ear for the past 15 days.[arquivosdeorl.org.br]
  • Since the cochlea is invariably affected in labyrinthine inflammation, hearing loss is always present to some degree.[patient.info]
  • The aim of the present study was to clarify whether BPPV manifests equally in both labyrinths or whether there is a preponderance for one side.[jnnp.bmj.com]
  • This pain and suffering -- the tax imposed by the thorns/death in the rose fable -- is now presented in this maternal imagery as the blood associated with childbirth.[popupchinese.com]
Falling
  • Less than a year after the death of star David Bowie, Labyrinth, reports indicate that the sequel is set to begin filming in fall 2017: Fede Alvarez, the filmmaker behind last year’s sleeper hit Don’t Breathe, is tackling a sequel to Labyrinth, the 1986[snopes.com]
  • Sarah started falling to the ground. Jareth helped her down and sat with her on the sidewalk. He gently fixed her hair so that he could see her eyes, relishing in being able to touch her. Sarah had tears falling down her face.[fanfiction.net]
  • […] uncover ocular vertical misalignment, or skew deviation, which has been linked to lateral medulla and pontine ischemic strokes. 6 Impaired balance can be a feature of peripheral vertigo; however, the inability to stand or take a single step without fall[neurology.org]

Impulsivity
  • The bedside head impulse testing, nystagmus assessment, and test of skew deviation (HINTS) examination systematically assesses oculomotor findings that help distinguish peripheral and central causes of acute vestibular syndrome. 6 A positive head impulse[neurology.org]
  • The combination of a normal head impulse test, the presence of bi-directional nystagmus and vertical skew is more sensitive than an initial MRI for ischaemic stroke detection when patients are seen in the first 48 hours of symptom onset.[patient.info]

Vertigo
  • CONCLUSION: Peripheral vertigo must be recognized as a symptom by otorhinolaryngologists; investigation of its etiology is important for initiation of therapy. Print:[arquivosdeorl.org.br]
  • Movement of the eye suggests a central cause of vertigo.[patient.info]
  • A broad range of complaints falls under the categories of dizziness and vertigo.[anxieties.com]
  • Vertigo: An unpleasant sensation of the world rotating, usually associated with nausea and vomiting. Vertigo usually is due to an issue with the inner ear.[ent-specialists.net]
Dizziness
  • CASE REPORT: Patient SMU, a 72-years-old woman, presented at the ambulatory with dizziness, vomiting, aural plenitude, and humming in her left ear for the past 15 days.[arquivosdeorl.org.br]
  • This week at AIB a 52 year old female, post subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), was referred with chronic debilitating dizziness, nausea and emesis.[dizzy.com]
  • Dizziness alone is insufficient cause to fear stroke.[anxieties.com]
  • Some of the most common balance disorders include: Labyrinthitis – dizziness and loss of balance caused by an infection or inflammation of the inner ear Meniere’s disease – vertigo, hearing loss and ringing in the ears caused by an inner ear fluid imbalance[brevardentcenter.com]
Nystagmus
  • Central vertigo can be characterized by purely torsional, pendular, or vertical nystagmus, and bidirectional gaze-evoked nystagmus. 2 , 4 , 5 In addition, spontaneous nystagmus from central lesions is often persistent, with lack of suppression on fixation[neurology.org]
  • Oroscopic, rhinoscopic, and otoscopic examinations were normal along with a positive Romberg test at the right and nystagmus was absent.[arquivosdeorl.org.br]
  • In the author's experience, these patients often exhibit rebound nystagmus, which is a variant of gaze-evoked nystagmus. Some of these patients have upbeating nystagmus supine, often confused with BPPV.[dizziness-and-balance.com]
  • Nystagmus type: Nystagmus is spontaneous. It is usually fine horizontal but may be mixed horizontal-torsional. It may be easier to see if sclera are exposed and the movement of scleral blood vessels can be followed.[patient.info]
  • In this condition, a shifting of position, such as rolling over in bed, can produce vertigo and nystagmus moments later, lasting no more than thirty seconds.[anxieties.com]
Dysarthria
  • […] can be a feature of peripheral vertigo; however, the inability to stand or take a single step without fall is indicative of central vertigo. 5 Associated symptoms can also help distinguish peripheral from central causes of vertigo. 2 , – , 4 Diplopia, dysarthria[neurology.org]

Workup

  • A study by Dempewolf et al noted that in patients with blunt temporal bone trauma, judicious use of a combination of helical CT–scan and physical exam findings during workup can be useful when no maxillofacial CT scans are indicated.[emedicine.medscape.com]

Treatment

  • Frank: responsible for care, diagnosis, and treatment of the patient, critical revision of the manuscript for important intellectual content, study supervision. STUDY FUNDING No targeted funding reported.[neurology.org]
  • Treatment administered depends on the etiology and antivertigo and vestibular rehabilitation exercises are recommended. The prognosis is related to the intensity of the internal ear lesions and the causative agent.[arquivosdeorl.org.br]
  • Managing these complex conditions requires staying informed and working together with your doctor in order to receive effective treatment. VNG Forms[brevardentcenter.com]
  • With time and the right treatment, the prognosis is good.[hopkinsmedicine.org]

Prognosis

  • The prognosis is related to the intensity of the internal ear lesions and the causative agent.[arquivosdeorl.org.br]
  • Prognosis is generally considered to be poor with essentially no chance of functional recovery. The most common aetiologies are related to blood dyscrasias, anticoagulant therapy or local trauma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Prognosis varies, but permanent, severe impairment of both cochlear and vestibular function is possible.[neurology.org]
  • With time and the right treatment, the prognosis is good.[hopkinsmedicine.org]
  • Vestibular function testing: Caloric testing and an electronystagmogram may help in diagnosing difficult cases and in determining the prognosis for recovery.[patient.info]

Etiology

  • Etiologies for spontaneous labyrinthine hemorrhages have included blood disorders, most commonly leukemia, or drug-induced coagulopathies. 8 , 10 Further investigation of other etiologies may be affected by the limited ability for confirmatory pathologic[neurology.org]
  • CONCLUSION: Peripheral vertigo must be recognized as a symptom by otorhinolaryngologists; investigation of its etiology is important for initiation of therapy. Print:[arquivosdeorl.org.br]
  • Labyrinthitis can result from many different etiologies, including viral and bacterial infection of the inner ear, meningitis, autoimmune diseases, and trauma (20). Sensorineural hearing loss and vertigo are common symptoms.[aibolita.com]
  • Pathology Labyrinthitis can be divided according to etiology.[radiopaedia.org]
  • MRI is frequently needed to make a specific diagnosis and to separate vascular etiologies from tumor and other structural injuries. The pattern of sensory disturbance may be helpful.[dizziness-and-balance.com]

Epidemiology

  • Epidemiology [ 1, 4 ] There is a wide variability in reported prevalence of diseases causing vestibular dysfunction - from 3.1% one-year prevalence to 35.4%; however, in all studies the incidence increases with age [ 5 ].[patient.info]
