Episodic dizziness is a highly prevalent symptom that has historically been a challenge for primary care physicians, neurologists, and otolaryngologists to accurately diagnosis and properly treat. With an array of diagnoses to consider, including benign positional vertigo, vestibular migraine, M énière disease, vertebrobasilar syndrome, and vestibular schwannoma, among others, considerable effort has been placed by otolaryngology and neurology societies to carefully examine the literature and generate clinical criteria and guidelines to aid the clinician and to standardize diagnostic algo rithms and treatment...

Scalp arteriovenous malformations (AVM), also known as cirsoid aneurysms, are rare lesions that are congenital, traumatic or post-infectious in nature. These lesions may be found incidentally or due to the signs and symptoms that they produce, such as an enlarging pulsatile mass, headache, tinnitus or bleeding. Treatment of these lesions usually consists of endovascular embolization followed by surgical resection. These lesions often constitute high flow arterial blood from the superficial temporal or occipital arteries with venous outflow into extracranial venous structures.
