Labyrinthitis

Other Names:
Neuronitis
Nature:

The terms labyrinthitis and neuronitis refer to inflammations of the inner ear or the nerves connecting the inner ear to the brain. The inflammation can be caused by either bacterial or viral infections. If the inflammation affects the cochlea, it will produce disturbances in hearing, such as ear noises (tinnitus) or hearing loss. If the vestibular system is affected, the symptoms will include dizziness and difficulty with vision and/or balance.
