A 47-year-old man received a diagnosis of Meniere disease (MD) because of recurrent vertigo, fluctuating hearing loss, and tinnitus in his left ear for more than 7 years.1 The patient’s frequent vertigo attacks had caused more than 10 Tumarkin drop attacks, which frightened him. However, he did not develop any other neurological disease, such as epilepsy or ataxia.
One of the patient's typical drop attacks occurred while he was standing inside the business he owns and happened to be recorded by video surveillance (Video). He did not lose consciousness and vomited throughout the episode. He did not have nausea or foaming at the mouth. Each attack was less than 1 minute in duration. He was able to stand on his own after falling. This sort of drop attack occurred 1 or 2 additional times during the week.
