ABSTRACT

""Recurrent Vestibulopathy"" is defined as a vertigo of unknown origin with multiple episodes of attack without any auditory or neurological symptoms and signs. Eleven patients with recurrent attacks of vertigo diagnosed as ""Recurrent Vestibulopathy"" from July 1989 to August 1993 in Dae-Dong Hospital were reviewed. The duration of follow-up was from 15 months to 63 months, average 32.3±15.1 months. The interval of recurrent attacks varied from 1 month to 2 years and the average was 5.9±3.8 months. The numbers of recurrent attacks were from twice to 6 times, average 3.2±1.1 times. The duration of vertigo was from 3 hours to 60 hours, the average 18.2±12.5 hours. The prognosis regarding vertigo was relatively good : nine of 11 patients showed absent or reduced vertigo attack.
