Meniere's Disease is a pathologic condition of the inner ear characterized by the presence of sudden bouts of vertigo, fluctuating hearing loss, tinnitus, and/or aural fullness. Although much has been discovered on this disease since the first description by Prosper Meniere, the pathophysiology of the events leading to the clinical symptoms of the disease is still under debate. This study aims to perform an up-to-date review on Meniere's Disease, focusing on histopathology, pathophysiology, genetics, and causative mechanisms.
