Meniere’s disease, also called endolymphatic hydrops, is a disorder of the inner ear where the endolymphatic system is distended due to endolymph. It is characterized by vertigo, tinnitus, sensorineural hearing loss, and aural fullness. Meniere's disease's primary pathology disease is the distension of the endolymphatic system due to an increased volume of endolymph. This can result either from increased production of endolymph or its faulty absorption or both. The description of hypothyroidism as a disease is not directly found in Unani texts. However, in Unani medicine, the signs and symptoms of Meniere's disease such as Dawar (vertigo), Taneen (tinnitus), Hissi Asabi Bahrapan (sensorineural hearing loss), and Seqal-e-Uzn (aural fullness) were linked to clinical manifestation in the context of Su-e-Mizaj Barid Maddi (derangement in cold temperament) as a result of excessive production of endolymph. On the basis of this fact, an attempt has been understanding the illness and how Unani Medicine treats it is provided.
