The cervicogenic oto-ocular syndrome is a peripheral vestibular syndrome, including objective vertigo, tinnitus, mydriasis and neuroautonomic disorders, whose etiopathogenesis is linked to an abnormal stimulation of the anterior part of the cervical orthosympathetic system. The clinical-physiopathological aspects of this syndrome may lead to its wrong inclusion among “Ménière’s like syndromes” whose therapeutical treatment is aspecific. In fact, for this syndrome, after being correctly identified through specific diagnostic methods, it is possible to perform a standard treatment able to obtain the total resolution of equilibrium disorders. Two clinical cases personally observed are reported.
