Vestibular migraine: A case report and review of the literature

Vestibular migraine (VM) is one of the most common causes of episodic vertigo, but it can be missed in patients complaining of dizziness. This report describes the case of a 46-year-old woman with episodic vertigo attacks and a history of migrainous headaches. Some of the vertigo attacks were accompanied by a migraine. Gaze-induced nystagmus was present during attacks, but regressed with medication. Ear, nose, and throat evaluation; laboratory; imaging findings; and hearing test results were normal. Treatment with 500 mg valproic acid led to a rapid response in this case. VM should be considered in neurological examinations on the basis of clinical symptomatology.

Vestibuler migren: Olgu sunumu ve literatürün gözden geçirilmesi

Vestibuler migren epizodik vertigonun en sık nedenlerinden biridir ancak başdönmesi yakınmalarına sahip olgularda vestibüler migren tanısı atlanabilmektedir. Bu yazıda epizodik vertigo atakları ve özgeçmişinde migrenöz başağrıları olan 46 yaşında kadın olguyu sunmayı amaçladık. Vertigo ataklarının bazılarına migrenöz vasıfta başağrısı eşlik ediyordu. Nörolojik değerlendirmesinde atak döneminde bakış ile indüklenen nistagmusu olup atak dışında normaldi. Kulak burun boğaz değerlendirmesi, laboratuar ve görüntüleme çalışmaları ile işitme testi normaldi. Klinik semptomatoloji temelinde vestibüler migren tanısı düşünüldü. Tedavide 500 mg valproik asit ile hızlı yanıt alındı.
