Vestibular neuronitis and labyrinthitis result from inner ear viral infections (sometimes bacterial) that inflame the nerves that connect the inner ear to the brain.
(14) Other peripheral vestibular causes include vestibular neuronitis, viral labyrinthitis, Meniere's disease, vestibular schwannoma, perilymphatic fistula, superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD), and head trauma (basilar skull fracture).

Although psychiatric comorbidities in some vestibular disorders, such as Meniere's disease or vestibular neuronitis, or association with non-specific vertigo or dizziness have been extensively described (10,12,13), few studies exist concerning psychiatric disorders in patients with BPPV.
The diagnosis of Meniere's disease was made in 16 patients (53.3%) and vestibular neuronitis in 11 patients (36.7%).

Patients were excluded if they had (a) concomitant ear disease or conditions including chronic otitis media, Meniere disease, acute labyrinthitis, acute vestibular neuronitis, otosclerosis, perilymphatic fistula, cerebrovascular disease, or spontaneous nystagmus on physical examination (no consistent provoking factor) or (b) concomitant illness or injury prohibiting participation in DHP or CRP (e.g., cervical spine fracture, cervical pain).

In a patient with a first-ever attack of acute spontaneous vertigo persisting for several hours, the main differential diagnosis of acute vestibular neuronitis is cerebellar infarction.
