Clinical Features: A 46-year-old woman presented for care with complaints of acute vertigo and dizziness.

Intervention and Outcome: The patient was examined and diagnosed with left posterior canalolithiasis by means of the Dix-Hallpike maneuver. She was treated successfully with the Epley maneuver once and subsequently discharged without further treatment.

Conclusion: This case demonstrates the importance of correctly identifying patients with BPPV. This case also demonstrates the successful treatment of BPPV.
