Abstract

We examined dizzy patients with orthostatic dysregulation (OD) using the Schellong test, the Cornell Medical Index-Health Questionnaire (CMI) and the Yatabe-Guilford Personality test (Y-G test). Subjects were 134 patients (37 females and 97 females) who were confirmed to have OD based on a questionnaire survey conducted from December 1990 to November 1994.<BR>Systolic and diastolic pressures in the supine position in female patients with OD were lower than those in normal subjects. This tendency became more evident with advancing age.<BR>Of 17 males with OD, seven (41.2%) were types III or IV on the CMI, and seven (41.2%) were types B or E in the Y-G test which suggested mental and/or emotional "instability". Of 52 females with OD, 26 (50.0%) showed types III or IV on the CMI, and 19 (42.2%) were types B or E on the Y-G test. These results suggest that autonomic imbalance suspected on both the OD questionnaire results and the Schellong test is probably related to the occurrence of vertigo and/or dizziness, and that there is some correlation between OD and emotional and/or psychosomatic instability.
