Objective: To describe the videonystagmographic characteristics and the treatment of the patients reached with a canalolithiasis or a cupulolithiasis of the anterior semicircular canal. Material and method: Retrospective study concerning patients treated for a Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) of the anterior semicircular canal. Each patient after analysis under videonystagmoscopy (VNS) and under videonystagmography (VNG) was treated by manúuvres. Results: On 462 observations of typical BPPV 6 cases of VPPB of the anterior semicircular canal were treated concerning 5 patients (1.3%). Conclusion: The BPPV of the anterior semicircular canal are rare. We modified our method of diagnosis, and our therapeutic techniques could be validated with the help of the two-dimensional videonystagmography.
