In case 3, a year-old female, which we already reported, endolymphatic collapse in both ears may have changed bilateral inner ear function, resulting in Lermoyez’s syndrome. The stages of onset might be as follows: Then, the attacks of dizziness appeared.

The patients had recurrent episodes of vertigo with improvement of hearing or tinnitus, which is characteristic is Lermoyez’s syndrome. On the other hand, patients 2, a year-old male, synndrome a vertigo attack with improvement of unilateral hearing after defibrinogenation therapy.

On the basis of our findings and a review of the literature, we conclude that the major cause of Lermoyez’ syndrome may be an abnormal flexibility of the ductus reuniens.

Simultaneosly, the tinnitus disappears and hearing is restored. In case 1, a year-old female, dehydration with glycerol or furosemide induced nystagmus and improved bilateral hearing and the gain of the syndrkme reflex, while overhydration with drinking water impaired bilateral hearing with disappearance of nystagmus.
