Benign paroxysmal vertigo
BPV is usually idiopathic; however, it can occur secondary to other causes including head trauma. It is the most common cause of vertigo, with an annual incidence of between 10 and 60 per 100 000 people. BPV can occur at any age but is most common in the 50- to 70-year age group and is about twice as common in women than men.
