Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common peripheral cause of vertigo. It can be defined as transient vertigo induced by rapid changes in head position associated with a characteristic paroxysmal positional nystagmus. The aim of this study is to evaluate the association between the serum calcium and vitamin D levels in osteoporotic patients affected by recurrent BPPV. Calcium and 25-hydroxy-vitamin D levels were evaluated in peripheral venous serum samples of 40 BPPV patients. The reduction of serum vitamin D levels is present in 16 of BVVP patients with recurrence. After nutritional intake of vitamin there was a decline of vertiginous crisis recurrence. Our findings suggested that the administration of vitamin D dietary supplements can improve, reduce and even eliminate the BVVP vertiginous crisis

Abstract

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common peripheral cause of vertigo. It can be defined as transient vertigo induced by rapid changes in head position associated with a characteristic paroxysmal positional nystagmus. The aim of this study is to evaluate the association between the serum calcium and vitamin D levels in osteoporotic patients affected by recurrent BPPV. Calcium and 25-hydroxy-vitamin D levels were evaluated in peripheral venous serum samples of 40 BPPV patients. The reduction of serum vitamin D levels is present in 16 of BVVP patients with recurrence. After nutritional intake of vitamin there was a decline of vertiginous crisis recurrence. Our findings suggested that the administration of vitamin D dietary supplements can improve, reduce and even eliminate the BVVP vertiginous crisis
