Serum creatine kinase levels associated with benign paroxysmal vertigo in childhood.

The serum level of creatine kinase-MB (CK-MB) was elevated in 22 children with benign positional vertigo (BPV) evaluated prospectively by investigators and followed for, on average, 2.8 years. CK-MB values were unrelated to duration of BPV, time since last attack, and frequency of attack. In seven children who recovered from BPV during the study period, the CK-MB level normalized (Rodoo P et al: J Pediatr 2005;146:548).
