Labyrinthitis Unpacked: Clinical Perspectives & Management

with Dr. Sujana Chandrasekhar

In this episode, Dr. Sujana Chandrashekar, neurotologist with New York City’s ENT and Allergy Associates, joins host Dr. Ashley Agan to discuss labyrinthitis.

The podcast begins by reviewing the clinical presentation of labyrinthitis, drawing on Dr. Agan’s personal experience with the condition. Then, Dr. Chandrashekar explains in-depth the physical exam of the dizzy patient, focusing on differentiating central vestibular lesions (such as strokes) from peripheral ones (such as labyrinthitis). While labyrinthitis is a self-limited condition, Dr. Chandrashekar shares strategies to mitigate the associated nausea, imbalance, and hearing loss patients find debilitating. Finally, the surgeons discuss how vestibular physical therapy and adequate rest enable prompt recovery.
