Jacobson GP, Piker EG, Grantham SL, English LN. Age predicts the absence of caloric-induced vertigo. Journal of otology. 2018 Mar;13(13). 5-9. PMID: 29937859 [PubMed] PMCID: PMC6002628
The absence of vertigo during the caloric test, despite a robust response, has been suggested to represent a central vestibular system phenomenon. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the prevalence of absent caloric-induced vertigo perception in an unselected group of patients and to assess possible predicting variables.
