Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common cause of recurrent vertigo and is a clinical disorder characterized by brief recurrent spells of vertigo often brought about by certain head position changes as may occur with looking up, turning over in bed, or straightening up after bending over. The diagnosis of BPPV can be made based upon the history and examinations such as Dix– Hallpike test and supine roll test.
