Sažetak
Vertigo is a common prolem ine neurological practice, caused by a number of pathomorphological and pathophysiological substrates. The aim of the study was to assess the incidence of particular causes of vertigo in neurological practice. This prospective study included patients treated for vertigo at neurological aoutpatient clinic.The incidene of vertigo was comparable in the sexes. The most common cause of vertigo was vertebrobasilar insufficiency and transient ischemic attack of the vertebrobasilar circulation, followed by vestibular neuritis, stroke, and transient ischemic attacks caused by significant carotid artery stenosis. Other, more infrequent causes of vertigo in neurology practice were benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, multiple sclerosis, inflammation processes in the middle ear, brain tumors and acoustic neuroma. There was a statistically significant differenc in the middle ear, brain tumors and acoustic neuroma. There was a statistically significant difference in the causes of vertigo according to pathomorphological substrate and patient age. The patients that had suffered a stroke and those with transient ischemic attacks caused by significant carotid artery stenosis were significantly older. Besides established diagnostic methods, associated symptoms, severity, duration and course of vertigo are of great help in the diagnosis of particular cause of vertigo, which should be taken in consideration on assessing the possible causes of vertigo.
