Title:
Benign Paroxysmal Positioning Vertigo: A Disease Explainable by Inner Ear Mechanics 
Abstract:
Many arguments give evidence that benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo, one of the most frequent kinds of vertigo, can be reduced to mechanical processes in the vestibular part of the labyrinth. Based on the assumption that otoliths have departed from their normally fixed position in the otolithic membrane and travel in the semicircular canals, clinical observations find their explanation.
