Vertigo and Dizziness

by Carlo Raj, MD

Vertigo is a common presenting complaint in primary care and emergency departments. Often described as a perception of unwanted rotational motion, it represents vestibular dysfunction. It is important to differentiate vertigo from symptoms of disequilibrium and/or pre-syncope, as therapy differs significantly based on the etiology of symptomatology and subtype of vertigo. If there is an underlying etiology to the patient’s symptoms, treatment of this pathology will generally improve their vertigo. The differential diagnosis is extensive, as vertigo can arise from a central or peripheral lesion in the vestibular system.
