Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is a commonly diagnosed condition 1. Studies reveal that this is the commonest cause of giddiness. This condition is commonly caused by dysfunction involving posterior semicircular canal. Lateral and superior canals have also been implicated rarely. It has been estimated that nearly 15-20% of all patients presenting with giddiness suffer from BPPV 2. This article attempts to review the current available literature in this topic.
