ConclusionFrom this pilot study, we hypothesise that a fraction of patients with stroke/TIA who call for the EMS have their direct transport to hospital interrupted due to a lack of suspicion of the disease by the EMS nurse at the scene. These patients appear to have more vague symptoms including vertigo and disturbed balance. Instruments to identify these patients at the scene are warranted.

Conclusion: The efficacy of brainstem gliomas—treated with CyberKnife is efficacious with mild toxicity. Introduction Brainstem gliomas (BSGs) account for 5–15% of brain tumors and more likely happen in children (1). BSGs constitute at least 20% of childhood brain neoplasms (2), and the peak age is 7–9 years. In contrast, BSGs is rare in the adult population and account for only 1.5–2.5% of brain glioma, with a peak age of 40–70 years (1). Diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma(DIPG) was the most common type of BSG is that could invade the whole brainstem including midbrain, pons as well as me...

Authors: Lapira A Abstract Vestibular migraine probably represents the second most common cause of vertigo after benign positional vertigo, by far exceeding Ménière disease. There are still relatively few published reports on vestibular migraine management, despite its enormous importance in daily practice. In 2003 the first clinical definition of vestibular migraine was proposed. Studies published before 2003 used variable terms for vestibular migraine. Some authors recommend treating vestibular migraine using multiple drugs; others have focused on using only one drug. Although at present it is not p...

ConclusionsOur results seem to further support the concept that vertigo in migraine is best thought of as an integral manifestation of migraine, rather than a prodromal or aura symptom.

AbstractPrimary headaches are one of the most prevalent neurological disorders and can occur during a wide range of lifespan. Primary headaches, especially migraine, are cyclic disorders with a complex sequence of symptoms within every headache attack. There is no systematic review of whether these symptoms changes during lifespan. Indeed, the clinical presentation of migraine shows an age-dependent change with a significantly shorter duration of the attacks and occurrence of different paroxysmal symptoms, such as vomiting, abdominal pain or vertigo, in childhood and, in contrast, largely an absence of autonomic signs and ...

Authors: Cushing SL, Papsin BC Abstract Children frequently present with complaints of vertigo and/or disequilibrium. The etiology of such diagnoses include inner ear pathology, migraine and its variants, lesions of the central nervous system as well as mental health disorders, among others. The ability to reliably evaluate vestibular end-organ function is central to accurate diagnosis, however, examining children can be challenging. The current chapter will focus on the approach to assessing vestibular end-organ function in children, as well as the causes of vestibular impairment that are unique to this population...

Authors: Hain T, Cherchi M Abstract This chapter is a brief overview of migraine associated vertigo (MAV), focusing on the points most relevant to the practicing clinician. We review the definition of MAV, theories regarding its underlying pathophysiology, clinical presentation, epidemiology, findings on physical examination and oto vestibular testing, differential diagnosis, management and prognosis.

This article reviews 3 aspects of Meniere's disease (MD), which have been recently revisited: namely, the pathologic mechanism causing the attacks of vertigo, the clinical diagnosis, and the medical and surgical treatments. The characteristic attacks of vertigo are unlikely to be due to membrane ruptures, so a hypothesis that the vertigo is caused by a volume of endolymph shifting suddenly from the cochlea into the pars superior is suggested. The definite diagnosis according to the American Academy of Otolaryngology HNS 1995 criteria [13] failed to exclude vestibular migraine sufficiently and a revision in 2015 [14] has pa...
