Abstract
Vertigo is a common complaint in the elderly since disease-related vestibular dysfunction may be superimposed on the normal aging process. Accordingly, the manifestation or response to treatments of vestibular disorders may differ in the elderly. The incidences of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, vestibular neuritis, and Menieres disease in the elderly are similar to those in other age groups, whereas vascular vertigo, degenerative disorders, multisensory dizziness, and medication-related dizziness/vertigo are more common in the elderly. Consideration of normal aging physiology and associated medical conditions is mandatory when evaluating and treating elderly patients with dizziness/vertigo.
