Zusammenfassung

Schwindel bei Kindern und Jugendlichen ist nicht selten und wird in seiner Bedeutung unterschätzt. Eine systematische Untersuchung zeigte, dass die Prävalenz für mindestens eine Schwindelattacke im Jahr im Schulalter 15 % beträgt. In einer anderen Studie gaben 6 % 10-jähriger Kinder in Großbritannien (n=6965) Drehschwindel an, die Hälfte davon musste wegen des Schwindels Alltagstätigkeiten unterbrechen. Die Diagnose wird dadurch erschwert, dass die Krankengeschichte bei Kindern oft nur eingeschränkt verfügbar oder zu verwerten ist und etablierte Untersuchungsmethoden und Diagnosekriterien fehlen. Ziel dieses Kapitels ist es, die verfügbare Evidenz zusammenzufassen und auf dieser Grundlage ein strukturiertes diagnostisches Vorgehen zu ermöglichen. Die korrekte Diagnose ist Voraussetzung für eine erfolgreiche Therapie, verhindert unnötige Diagnostik und reduziert die Beunruhigung der Eltern und Kinder.
