It is also noteworthy for the superior semicircular canal dehiscence which most likely is an incidental finding.
Superior semicircular canal dehiscence and an abnormally wide internal auditory meatus are clinical entities characterized by vestibular and cochlear symptoms.
Researchers in mental health and neurological sciences then discuss such aspects as dizziness at the interface of psychiatry and neuro-otology, neurological causes of dizziness and vertigo, a modified vestibular rehabilitation program, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo in old age, arrhythmogenic causes of dizziness, cognitive deficits following complete bilateral loss of vestibular function and their relationship to the hippocampus, vibratory induced nystagmus in superior semicircular canal dehiscence and in otosclerosis, and pediatric vertigo.
In such cases, the presence of an acoustic reflex essentially rules out otosclerosis and points to "cochlear conductive loss" commonly seen in superior semicircular canal dehiscence, large vestibular aqueduct, and Meniere's disease.
