Vestibular migraine (VM) is a genetically predisposed disorder in which recurrent dizziness or vertigo, with or without headache, is the main clinical manifestation. It is one of the main causes of recurrent vertigo, with a predominance of middle-aged women. Its pathogenesis is not fully understood, and there are no authoritative treatment guidelines, and it is mostly managed in the same way as migraine. In order to further clarify the progress of Chinese and Western medical treatment of vestibular migraine, we have integrated the current relevant literature and presented it in the context of Chinese and Western medical understanding and treatment in order to provide reference for subsequent clinical treatment and research.
