Labyrinthitis Directory

Labyrinthitis occurs when the labyrinth, a part of the inner ear that helps control your balance, gets swollen and inflamed. The inflammation may cause you to feel like you are spinning or whirling. Labyrinthitis may also cause temporary hearing loss or a ringing sound in your ears. Labyrinthitis can happen after a viral infection or, more rarely, after an infection caused by bacteria. Most of the time, labyrinthitis goes away on its own after a few weeks. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how labyrinthitis is contracted, what it looks like, how to treat it, and much more.
