An understanding of vestibular function and a careful history will quickly separate patients with disease of the vestibular system from others. Further history and physical examination, often coupled with audiometric and vestibular function tests, will aid in localizing the lesion to the central or peripheral portions of the system and in determining the affected side. Medical management, which is often nonspecific and involves considerable psychological support, usually suffices.
