Introduction: Vestibular disorders cover a big quantity of pathologies associated with assorted characteristics of a deficient vestibular, proprioceptive, or visual system. Nowadays, there is a strong belief that genetics is huge prospective for all the conditions that are not well understood by the science. The past and the present bring some endeavors about literature describing the effect of genetic strains and the relationship with vestibular disorders.
Discussion: Vestibular disorders bring as main signs, dizziness, that is known as a symptom for different pathologies. Literature suggests that in some cases dizziness can be a predictor of different pathologies around the neural structures, compromising the function of the system in general. Additionally, some genetic markers and pre-dispositions are belief to be some of the causal factors of different pathologies.
Conclusion: More studies are necessary in order to understand the existent and very different vestibular pathologies. In some cases, involving the pure structure of the inner ear, it is believed that genetic factors may involve the performance of the individual. By the other side, in other pathologies like Meniere’s causal reasons are still a mystery for the field.
