Inner Ear Involvement in Behçet's Disease

Israel Brama, Menahem Fainaru

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ten of 16 patients with Behçet's disease complained of hearing disturbances (62%), and six of them had vertigo (37%). Detailed audiologic and vestibular examinations revealed both cochlear and vestibular abnormalities in those patients. The labyrinth involvement may be ascribed to vasculitis, which is the basic pathologic lesion in Behçet's disease. This inner ear involvement is a late complication of this disease, appearing almost a decade after the initial manifestations. (Arch Otolaryngol 106:215-217, 1980)
