A 4-year experience with new-onset vertigo in a university-based MS population was retrospectively reviewed. Of 1,153 patients with MS, 25 could be clinically evaluated during the vertiginous episode. Of these, 13 (52%) were diagnosed with benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo and eight (32%) had acute MS exacerbations with corresponding lesions within the brainstem. All patients diagnosed with benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo were treated successfully with particle repositioning maneuvers.
