Rotating vertigo without cochlear signs such as hearing loss or tinnitus can be seen in labyrinthine diseases, central nervous system and cardiovascular disorders. Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo is a more common disorder among various labyrinthine vertiginous diseases and its high cure rate is well documented. But the remission and recurrence rate of this disorder are still controversial. Fifty two cases of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo were analyzed with respect to the duration, recurrence of vertigo, and others. The results were as follows : The age incidence was most common in fifties and sex difference was not prominent. Vertigo persisted for three and a half weeks in average with appropriate treatment. In eleven cases, the vertigo recurred and the recurrence rate was twenty three percents. There were various past histories among which hypertension was most common. Pure rotating and horizontal rotating nystagmus were found most commonly at postitional nystagmus test.
