<p>We examined 103 patients with vestibular neuritis (VN) in a follow-up study (5.7 to 20.5 years, mean 9.8 years). Two patients (1.9%) had developed a second occurrence of VN 29 to 39 months after the first. VN affected the contralateral ear in both and caused less severe distressing vertigo and postural imbalance. Unlike Bell's palsy and sudden hearing loss, a relapse in the same ear did not occur.</p>
