Overview

The Unterberger test, also Unterberger's test and Unterberger's stepping test, is a test used in otolaryngology to help assess whether a patient has a vestibular pathology. It is not useful for detecting central (brain) disorders of balance.[1]

Technique

The patient is asked to walk on the spot with their eyes closed.

Interpretation

If the patient rotates to one side they have a labyrinthine lesion on that side.
