Vertigo and dizziness are commonly reported symptoms in neurology and otolaryngology consults. The etiologies of disorders are usually classified from the anatomical perspective. The most common peripheral vestibular disorders affect the vestibular nerve and/or the labyrinth. In contrast, when a lesion involves the vestibular nuclei, cerebellum and accessory vestibular pathways, it is considered a central vestibular disorder. Within the latter group, vestibular migraine is the most common disorder and considered the most frequent form of episodic vertigo. Other central causes of vertigo include head injuries, posterior circulation stroke, paraneoplastic syndrome, central nervous system inflammatory and demyelinating diseases, degenerative disorders, infections, posterior fossa brain tumors and side effects of medications; all are potentially life-threatening conditions.
In this Special Issue, we seek submissions that address the etiologies, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of central vestibular disorders. We invite research articles, reviews and commentaries on these topics.
