ABSTRACT
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is inner ear disorder caused by a displacement by otoconia from the utricle into semicircular canal (SCC). It is usually present as a definite vertigo spell induced by change in head position. Even though the posterior canal is by far most frequent, BPPV can involve any SCC. The diagnosis is confirmed by typical clinical presentation and positional tests. The aim of the review article was to provide a current opinion regarding vertical canal BPPV.
