PMID: 36247755.


"Recurrent Vertigo of Childhood" (RVC) has recently replaced the term "Benign Paroxysmal Vertigo of Childhood" and was defined as recurrent spells of vertigo without evidence of a vestibular migraine of childhood (VMC). RVC and VMC are considered the most frequent causes of vertigo and dizziness in children below 18 years of age. Diagnosis might be challenging since clinical features of RVC and VMC may overlap.
