A decrease in cerebrospinal fluid pressure may result in an endolymphatic hydrops through a patent cochlear aqueduct or through the fundus of the internal auditory canal.
Such anomalies include a dilated internal auditory canal fundus, a dilated vestibule, an enlarged cochlear aqueduct (specifically, the otic segment), an enlarged vestibular aqueduct, and cochlear dysplasia.
the cochlear aqueduct and the internal auditory canal).

The infection spreads to the inner ear via subarachnoid spaces, such as the cochlear aqueduct and the internal auditory canal.
