Vestibular disorders in children are a significant cause of childhood morbidity with various manifestations that are often unrecognized or undiagnosed. The etiological profile, phenotype, and management for peripheral and central disorders are markedly different from that in adults. The diagnostic algorithm with the latest technology is also different as children are far more difficult to obtain anamnesis from and to test as compared to adults. Examining a child is really an art that can come from years of experience and knowledge about the pediatric vestibular system and its development. It is also important to recognize the close overlap with pediatric neurology and indeed, a robust knowledge in neurology is essential to practice pediatric neurotology. This presentation includes an overview of the developing pediatric vestibular system in children, the etiology of pediatric vestibular disorders, the diagnostic process with evidence-based latest methods, and their management. The differences in pediatric vestibular diagnosis and disease profiles are also highlighted from the authors’ personal series.
