Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo in pregnancy

M. Georgescu, A. Pascu

Abstract: The authors present two case reports of recurrent positional vertigo during pregnancy, without any recognized specific cause (traumatic or viral), which were rapidly diagnosed as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo just by specific clinical examination. Acknowledgement of this disease allows early diagnostic and appropriate treatment. Even though is a benign pathology, it has a strong impact on patient’s quality of life, which imposes an early correct medical care.
Keywords: otoconia, semicircular canal, positional vertigo
