Post-traumatic vertigo can be defined as the vertiginous disorder occurred after head and neck trauma without other pre-existing vestibular disorder. Central, peripheral and combined deficits might cause this condition. Especially, various peripheral vestibulopathies are possible causes of post-traumatic vertigo; benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), temporal bone fracture, perilymphatic fistula, labyrinthine concussion, post-traumatic hydrops and cervical vertigo. Since the differential diagnosis of the post-traumatic vertigo is often difficult, it is essential to acquire knowledge of their pathophysiology and clinical features. In this review, peripheral vestibulopathy as the possible causes of post-traumatic vertigo were described according to the current literature.
