In 3 years, a total of 1,291 patients have undergone equilibrium examinations because of vertigo, dizziness and disequilibrium in the Otoneurological Division of Toyama Medical and Pharmaceutical University. Abnormal blood pressures (hypertension, hypotension and orthostatic hypotension) were found in 18.67% (241 patients). Hypotension was found significantly more often in peripheral vestibular disorders and hypertension in central nervous system disorders. Furthermore, the incidence of orthostatic hypotension was statistically higher in hypertensive patients than in hypotensive patients. Therefore, we conclude that blood pressure measurement by the Schellong test method in patients with vertigo, dizziness and disequilibrium is very important.
