Luetic endolymphatic hydrops (LEH) is an effectively treatable disorder that requires astute clinical judgment to suspect, confirm, and treat. We provide a review of the literature as well as recommendations regarding the clinical management of LEH with discussion of several illustrative cases. We also give an overview of laboratory testing for the diagnosis and monitoring of the infectious process. Ultimately, the control of the otologic symptoms in LEH requires acumen on the part of the clinician.
