Abstract
The symptoms of vertigo are frequent complaints. With the anamnestic features and the quite long and tiresome clinical examination alone, the general practitioner should make the difference between a benign peripheral and a potentially fatal central pathology. A good knowledge of the anamnestic and clinical particularities and the diagnostic manoeuvres of the main types of vertigo allows in about two thirds of the cases to distinguish their origin. If a central origin is suspected or if the etiology is uncertain, the patient should be referred to a neurologist for further examination and radiological investigations.
