T-Lymphocyte Subpopulations and HLA-DR Antigens in Patients with Bell’s Palsy, Hearing Loss, Neuronitis Vestibularis, and Ménière’s Disease
Numerous and various immunological tests have been made in the last few years for researching and diagnosing immunological diseases of the labyrinth. In spite of the different possibilities for immunological testing, Veldmann  is right in talking of the diagnostic dilemma of recognizing supposed immuno-otological diseases. This is also true to the same degree for the facial nerve.
