Abstract

Vertigo and migraine are known to be frequently associated. However, only recently, the etiological links between the two diseases are being investigated and explained. More and more interest is being attracted by migrainous vertigo, an isolated entity that might deserve inclusion in the International Classification of Headache Disorders. The authors briefly review the main links between migraine and vertigo.
