Abstract

Dizziness is a frequently occurring problem with a negative influence on quality of life. In this article, the most common causes of dizziness are discussed on the basis of practical questions from clinical practice. The importance of a structured anamnesis is reviewed. The clinical syndrome of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and its treatment are covered extensively. Red flag symptoms of acute vestibular syndrome are specified, as well as symptoms that justify referral from primary to secondary care.
