This second edition of Vertigo is a completely rewritten monograph on the differential diagnosis and management of vertigo in the light of the latest clinical research. Vertigo consists of a variety of syndromes which are surprisingly easy to diagnose and which can, in most cases, be treated effectively. However, treatment requires an interdisciplinary approach to the patient. Sensorimotor physiology is the key to an understanding of the pathogenesis of vertigo; thorough examination of the patients history and otoneurological examination are the key to diagnosis. Vertigo is organised into sections covering the major subdivisions of vertigo, including peripheral labyrinthine disorders; central vestibular disorders; benign paroxysmal positional vertigo; vascular, traumatic and familial vertigo; vertigo in childhood and in the elderly; and vertigo related to drugs. These sections are further subdivided into chapters covering particular aspects of vertigo such as ?Migraine and Vertigo? which are included in the section on vascular vertigo. The section on vertigo arising from multisensory interaction covers non-vestibular syndromes such as visual vertigo and cervical vertigo. It also covers psychogenic vertigo syndromes which are among the most common causes of vertigo. There is a full description of the clinical features and diagnosis of each disease, and the author stresses the relationship between management and the underlying pathological mechanism. Written by a leading authority in the field, this book will be of interest to neurologists, ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists, and others who see vertigo patients in their clinics, as well as researchers working in the area of vertigo-related problems. From a review of the first edition: ?This book is really a tour-de-force, an exhaustive, scholarly work clearly directed to the interested clinician. It will be of great value to almost all physicians but in particular to neurologists who so often encounter the complaints of vertigo and related problems?
