Vestibular neuritis is a group of symptoms resulting from a sudden unilateral vestibular dysfunction. It seldom occurs in children (approximately 7%). Its etiology and pathogenesis are unknown, although most researchers consider viral infection to be a causative factor. The clinical symptoms appear rapidly, exacerbate within a few hours and include vertigos, accompanied by nausea, vomiting and paralytic nystagmus, which intensifies with head movements. This is a case of a 15-year-old boy, so far healthy and with normal psychomotor development, who was admitted to the hospital ward due to exacerbating vertigos accompanied by nausea and balance disorders.
