Vertigo and migraine are commonly co-occurring problems. The diagnostic criteria for vestibular migraine have recently been updated in the International Classification of Headache Disorders, 3rd edition (beta version), which allow better detection of this under-recognized condition. In many cases, a diagnosis of vestibular migraine will be established based on a typical history of concurrent migraine headache, photophobia, and/or migraine aura with the vertigo. Certain mimickers, such as Ménière’s disease, likely exist on a pathophysiologic continuum with vestibular migraine. In our review, we provide an update on the salient literature regarding the diagnosis and management of this condition.
