Abstract: The central and peripheral vestibular system, in conjunction with the ocular and somato-sensory systems, is responsible for the equilibrium, bilance and orientation of the body in the space. Balance and its disorders are intimately connected with the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system and therefore knowledge of the gross and molecular mechanisms in the posterior labyrinth and its pathways is necessary for a correct diagnosis and an accurate management of the dizzy patient.
