Abstract

Vertigo is a well-known sub-category of dizziness that is often described as a state or sensation of an illusional motion or spinning surroundings either revolving around an individual external world or revolving the individual in a certain space. Vertigo has been associated with various comorbidities including psychological and cardiovascular diseases. This review aims to improve the understanding and reintroduce the general clinical aspects of vertigo for family medicine physicians. This review was guided by the preferred electronic research engine of PubMed, Medline, and Google Scholar databases. This review discussed only published English and English translated documents, articles, systemic reviews related to the subject, and no rejected or papers were included. Vertigo can be presented as a benign or more serious acute disorders. The benefits of taking history and performing physical examination would exclude most patients who might report false symptoms experiencing vertigo and dizziness as the main complaint, particularly on initial presentation. Nevertheless, regarding definite diagnosis, many presented cases were not diagnosed accurately. However, patients are treated depending on the underlying cause.
