Two tests were administered to vertigo patients: the Cornell Medical Index (CMI) and the Manifest Anxiety Scale (MAS).<BR>1. Vertigo patients at low risk of psychosomatic problems on CMI showed a tendency to be cured easier than those at high risk of psychosomatic problems on CMI. Vertigo patients at low risk of psychosomatic problems on MAS showed a tendency to be cured significantly more easily than those at high risk of psychosomatic problems on MAS.<BR>2. This fact along with the fact that in the same patients, CMI and MAS test results showed no significant difference when tested during vertigo and during absence of vertigo supported the theory that CMI and MAS test results showed more psychosomatic problems in vertigo patients because of differences due to individual characteristics.
