Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The pathology of vestibular migraine (VM) remains unknown. We compared vestibular-evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) test results of seven patients with VM and three patients with Meniere's disease (MD). We studied the 500-1000 VEMP slope score, which suggests the presence of endolymphatic hydrops if reduced, and p13 latencies, which suggest retrolabyrinthine/central lesions if prolonged. The percentage of reduced slope scores (MD-affected side, MD-unaffected side, VM) was 66.7%, 33.3%, and 57.1%, respectively. Prolonged pl3 latencies were 33.3%, 0%, and 84.6%, respectively. These results suggest that VM is not a single disease entity, but rather a disease concept with different pathologies.
