Abstract

Vertigo is a symptom, not a diagnosis and effective diagnosis and management begin with understanding what this symptom may represent. Thus the presence of postural insility includes a differential diagnosis for otologic, neurologic and other medical causes. The objective of this paper is to provide evidence-based recommendations for the proper management of vertigo by multi-parametric analysis of the guidelines available to date.
