Electronystagmography in a patient with recent disequilibrium and a family history of otosclerosis. (Vestibulology Clinic).
Electronystagmography revealed no spontaneous or positional nystagmus. Alternate binaural bithermal testing showed that she had a reduced vestibular response (RVR) on the right and a slightly hypoactive warm response on the right. Simultaneous binaural bithermal testing elicited a type 2 response with an RVR right, thus identifying a peripheral vestibular disorder.
