Abstract

More than 150 years after its initial description by Prosper Menière, the disease named after him is still at the center of scientific debates. Two recent developments have specifically created a breeding ground for controversy: (1) Since its first description 10 years ago, magnetic resonance imaging diagnosis of endolymphatic hydrops in living patients has seen an increasing and worldwide application. (2) The Bárány Society Classification Committee published diagnostic criteria for Menière’s disease in 2015 and proposed a concept of the disease that has elicited widespread criticism. In order to promote the understanding of the underlying controversies and arguments, this article gives an overview of and discusses relevant classification proposals for Menière’s disease, including the new classification system of hydropic ear disease.
