Bell’s palsy is acute idiopathic peripheral facial nerve palsy which is diagnosed after all the possible causes are ruled out. Several symptoms and signs of polyneuropathy, such as hypesthesia of cranial nerve IX or V, vagal motor weakness, retroauricular pain, and hearing impairment were frequently accompanied with Bell’s palsy. However, association of vertigo has been rarely reported, and moreover, associated vestibulopathy was not characterized in detail in those cases. We report a 35 year-old male patient with Bell’s palsy accompanying acute peripheral vestibular loss, which eventually evolved to benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
