Description Cervical vertigo has long been a controversial entity, which is generally accepted in practice by the medical community. We present the summary of contemporary knowledge of the scientific biography of cervical vertigo, possible etiology, diagnosis and treatment. This disorder is overdiagnosed and there is still no laboratory or clinical test to confirm the diagnosis, while none of the possible theories provide fully convincing evidence of a cervical mechanism. Appropriate management is difficult and mostly empirical.
