Migrainous vertigo is one of common recurrent vestibular disorders. Because the diagnostic criteria have not been yet settled internationally, we have a difficulty in both diagnosis and research in migraineurs with vertigo. Literature about the diagnostic criteria of migrainous vertigo and its differential diagnosis were reviewed. Until now, the criteria proposed by Neuhauser et al. is regarded as most adequate in diagnosis of migrainous vertigo. Differential diagnosis of migrainous vertigo should be guided by distinction of vestibular symptoms and nonvestibular dizziness and consider the common causes of recurrent vertigo. Just like migraine itself, migrainous vertigo is diagnosed on the basis of history and exclusion of other vestibular disorders mimicking migrainous vertigo. Therefore, delicate history taking is the most important in diagnosis and management of patients with migrainous vertigo.
