(1) We have discussed three problems in clinical otology in which the vascular problem is prominent: sudden deafness, Ménifere's disease and Bell's palsy. (2) Medical treatment revolving about the use of vasodilators and surgical intervention have been helpful but not completely satisfactory. (3) We appeal for greater efforts to clarify the underlying pathogenesis and the development of more effective methods of treatment in these conditions.
