Benign paroxysmal vertigo is reflected by the recurrence of events of brief dysequilibrium in young children. When the attacks occur, the child appears frightened and off balance, often reaching out to steady himself. The events may be associated with nystagmus, diaphoresis, nausea, and vomiting. These attacks occur in toddlers and young children but typically resolve by age 5 years. Neurologic examination, development, and EEG are normal. A later association with migraine has been reported (21).
