Vestibular medicine is emerging as a recognized discipline to increase diagnostic accuracy in vestibular disorders. During the last decade, the discipline has been coordinated by the Bárány Society, an international multidisciplinary scientific society, originally founded in 1960, that includes basic scientists and clinicians engaged in vestibular research. The Bárány Society has developed an International Classification of vestibular disorders.1 This standardization effort has yielded several diagnostic criteria for multiple disorders, including vestibular migraine, Ménière disease, vestibular paroxysmia, persistent postural phobic dizziness, and bilateral vestibulopathy (BVP), among other conditions.2-4
