Migrainous Vertigo

Show Summary Details


It has become clear that vertigo is a common migraine aura symptom. There are some migraine disorders with prominent vertigo, such as basilar-type migraine and benign positional vertigo of childhood. The diagnosis of migrainous vertigo in the absence of the accompanying headache is a bit challenging but crucial if these patients are to receive effective treatment. Criteria are summarized in this chapter. The differential diagnosis of vertigo is discussed as well.
