Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article presents a detailed case report of a patient who was diagnosed with superior canal dehiscence at 37 years of age, but who had a suspicious history for that syndrome from at least 10 years of age. The authors hypothesize several reasons for this late diagnosis, with the goal of helping pediatricians, otolaryngologists, and neurologists consider this syndrome in their differential diagnosis of children, adolescents, or adults experiencing dizziness.
