Abstract

Recently, cases of vertigo have shown a tendency to increase, especially among middle age, and elderly patients. However, these patients often consult an internist or clinical neurogist. Therefore, I will touch upon the main points of diagnosing and treating patients with vertigo at an ENT clinic.<BR>As an approach to diagnosis, first, taking the history plays a great role, secondly, neurological signs are useful for distinguishing peripheral and/or central vertigo. Next, from among the vestibular function tests available, examination of eye movements, spontaneous nystagmus include gaze nystagmus, positional and positioning nystagmus, head shaking nystagmus and stabilometry are significant.<BR>In this paper, I report cases of vertigo or equilibrium disorders and discuss the treatment or prescription based on my clinical experience.<BR>Generaly, ENT doctors should treat patients with vertigo.
