Superior semicircular canal dehiscence syndrome (SSCDS) is a rare and recently described inner ear lesion presenting with disequilibrium and associated with dehiscence of the bony covering of SSC. SSCDS patients may present with a variety of vestibular or auditory symptoms or both. Patients present with vertigo induced by sound or pressure. The diagnosis of SSCDS depends on the demonstration of a defect in the bony wall of the roof of the SSC. A high-resolution computed tomography is helpful for diagnosis. It is usually treated by plugging of dehiscence. The aim of this review article is to discuss the etiopathology, clinical presentation, investigations, and recent treatment of SSCDS.
