Dizziness with dyscirculatory encephalopathy (DEP) can have a complex clinical and pathogenetic structure. In some cases, dizziness (more precisely, pseudo-vertigo) is causally associated with this cerebrovascular syndrome, representing postural instability or frontal dysbasia. Much less often, true (vestibular) vertigo is associated with local damage to the vestibulo-cerebellar connections or chronic vestibular dysfunction, in the development of which cerebral microangiopathy plays an important, but not always dominant role. The second group of syndromes represents chronic or acute dizziness caused by the addition of another disease to DEP that is not pathogenetically related to it (for example, peripheral vestibulopathy, sensory ataxia, neurodegeneration).

negative disorders, affective disorders, orthostatic hypotension, etc.). Modern approaches to the diagnosis of various types of vascular vertigo, pathogenetic and symptomatic methods of their treatment are presented.
