Background and Objectives:   Many authors have suggested close relationship between benign paroxysmal vertigo of childhood (BPVC) and migraine. But the relationship between the two is not clearly determined. Therefore we investigate clinical features and the course in children with BPVC and the possibility of evolution of migraine in BPVC.
Materials and Methods:  
We interviewed 30 subjects having enough medical records and fitted to BPVC category who visited otorhinolaryngology for vertigo from 1995 to 2006 year.
The BPVC was the most common diagnosis in our hospital and migraine associated vertigo was followed. The main features of the children with BPVC were in agreement with previous reports. The major differences were later age of onset, having trigger factor and non-spinning type of vertigo. During the follow up, 8 children developed migraine. Females were dominant duration of illness was longer in this group. Almost of them suffered from motion sickness and had more family history of migraine, which was maternal dominant.
The long term close follow-up may be needed in BPVC having possibility of evolution to migraine.
