The symptoms caused by Meniere’s disease and migraine as well as the possible association between these disorders remain a matter of intense interest. As noted in Boyev’s review, the 2 conditions can coexist. One of the conundrums in determining which entity may be the cause of episodic vertigo and fluctuating hearing loss is that the pathophysiologic characteristics of Meniere’s disease and migraine are poorly understood. Indeed, as knowledge of the disease mechanisms in these conditions increases, it may be found that these disorders have a related cause.
