• A recent series of findings based on psychological test patterns suggests that the behavioral disturbance seen in Ménière disease is, in many instances, predicated on organic cerebral impairment. If this proves to be the case, an important source would have been uncovered that could account for some of the behavioral difficulties associated with Ménière disease. The present study challenges the previous reports, suggesting that these findings emerged because of imprecise methodologic procedures. The results based on our psychological test patterns reject prior conclusions that there is demonstrable evidence for organic cerebral impairment in patients with Ménière disease.
