Hyperhomocysteinemia is a risk factor for both arterial and venous thrombosis. In this article, the author describes the case of a patient who developed incapacitating Meniere's symptom complex. The work-up revealed a left internal jugular vein thrombosis, and it was later found that the patient had hyperhomocysteinemia.

Once the patient was anticoagulated, her symptoms resolved.
