Dear Colleagues,

Vertigo and dizziness are not unique disease entities. The two terms cover a number of multisensory and sensorimotor syndromes of various etiologies and pathogeneses. The life-time prevalence of vertigo and dizziness is around 30%.

There are three reasons why we should increase our knowledge and improve our skills in this field: (1) vertigo and dizziness are, after headache, the 2nd most common complaint of patients, not only in neurology and ENT departments; (2) most vertigo syndromes can be correctly diagnosed by means of a careful medical history and physical examination of the patient even without laboratory examinations; and (3) nowadays, once a correct diagnosis is made most patients can be successfully treated.

This first International Master Class of the German Center for Vertigo and Balance Disorders and the European Dizzinet on vestibular, ocular motor and balance disorders covers the functional anatomy and clinical and laboratory examination of the vestibular and ocular motor systems as well as taking of the patient history. It also gives an update on the clinical features and treatment of the most relevant peripheral, central, and functional vestibular as well as ocular motor disorders.
On day one 15 to 30-minute-long talks on these topics are given. On day two there are hands-on courses on several topics of diagnosis and treatment of vestibular and ocular motor disorders, including functional imaging.
