Persistent postural-perceptual dizziness

[Article in English, Norwegian]

Abstract

Persistent symptoms of dizziness may be due to inappropriate compensatory strategies following an episode of acute dizziness. Common symptoms are dizziness in an upright position that is aggravated by visual stimuli and passive movement. In the World Health Organization’s new disease classification, ICD-11, the condition has been named persistent postural-perceptual dizziness. It is important to recognise this condition in order to avoid unnecessary investigation and to initiate the correct treatment.
