Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo in Pregnancy
MetadataShow full item record
Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is a clinical entity characterized by acute, brief paroxysmal attacks of rotational vertigo induced by head position changes. It is the most common peripheral vestibular pathology and is seen more frequently in women. However, to our knowledge, there is very limited data on the association between BPPV and pregnancy in both English and Turkish literature. We present four pregnant women diagnosed with BPPV for the first time during gestation and revise the etiological factors of BPPV and the role of pregnancy-related changes in BPPV.
