Summary Menièrès disease is characterised by recurrent attacks of vertigo, sensory hearing loss and tinnitus. Menière-attacks can lead to additional dizziness components. <br>While diagnosis in recurrent spells is easily secured, leading the patients is as difficult as the mostly unclear development of this - mostly - progredient disease. Fundament of this frequently changing disease is a reliable patient-physician relation, which should be based on a knowledge of all facts of the diseases which do not only include ENT-science but also broad medical counseling
