Vestibular deficits due to SS have rarely been reported
in the otolaryngological literature because early reports
noted the selective deposition of hemosiderin around
the CNS and/or the 8th nerve in contact with the
cerebrospinal fluid, most notably the cerebellum, brainstem,
lining of the ventricles, and spinal cord [1,4].
These deposits around CNS structures and/or the 8th
nerve were considered to be the changes most responsible
for the disequilibrium of SS.
