Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is an overlooked complication of head trauma

Ugeskr Læger 2019;181:V09180605

Head trauma can cause benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and may be an overlooked complication. This is a review of the literature on BPPV following head trauma. Studies indicate, that 11-57% of patients with vertigo after head trauma can be diagnosed with BPPV. BPPV occurs after mild to severe head trauma. The reposition chair is expected to help diagnosing and treating patients with traumatic BPPV, particularly in more resistant cases. Outreach efforts towards this group of patients could decrease the number of sick days.
