Objective: The authors present a case of recovery of saccular function after vestibular rehabilitation. Material and method: Vestibular rehabilitation is proposed to a patient presenting a left lateral body deviation as well as postural disorders at the time of the vertical movements and in car, associated with an unilateral abolition of vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP). Results: We observe a recovery of VEMP and a disappearance of symptomatology after vestibular rehabilitation. Conclusion: A loss of saccular function can involve a postural disorder in some circumstances. The best treatment is vestibular rehabilitation. We insist on the need for knowing otolithic semiology in order to propose suitable explorations and therapy.
