Ethics declarations

Conflicts of interest

Dr. Kattah reports that video head impulse test equipment, on loan from GN Otometrics, was used to evaluate the patient described in this case study.

Ethical statement

We verify that this manuscript contains a statement to the effect that all human and animal studies have been approved by the appropriate ethics committee. This is a single case report; however, the patient signed a consent as part of our study of patient with vestibular disorders; therefore, the study was performed in accordance with the ethical standards laid down in the 1964 Declaration of Helsinki and its later amendments. You may have to state that specific national laws have been observed, too.
