Background and Objectives:   Because vestibular symptoms are frequent in patients with migraine, a potential link between migraine and benign positional vertigo (BPV) was suggested. The aim of our study was to determine one-year prevalence of migraine in patients with BPPV compared to an age- and sex- matched orthopedic control group.
Materials and Method:   A prospective study was conducted on a consecutive series of 184 patients (68 male, 116 women, aged from 14 to 85) with idiopathic BPPV. The diagnosis of BPV was based on typical findings of vertigo and nystagmus by Dix-Hallpike maneuver and head turning in supine position. The diagnosis of migraine was made on a personal interview with structured questionnaire according to the International Headache Society (IHS) classification(1988).
Results:   The prevalence of migraine was not higher in the BPV (5.4%) group compared to the control group (10.8%; p=0.09). All of the 10 patients with BPV and migraine were migraine without aura.
Conclusion:   One year prevalence of migraine is not increased in patients with BPV. It is unlikely that migraine and idiopathic BPV is interrelated.
