    Dizziness and vertigo are caused by multiple etiologies, including cerebrovascular ischemic events. However, identifying cerebrovascular ischemic events as a cause of dizziness and vertigo remains a challenge. We tried to assess the value of fibrinogen (FIB) in identifying of cerebral ischemic event in patients with dizziness/vertigo. The study enrolled patients with dizziness/vertigo presented within 72 h in a tertiary hospital. The plasma FIB levels were measured in all participants. According to the final diagnosis, participants were divided into cerebral ischemic events group and non-cerebrovascular diseases group. Multivariate logistic regression was performed to explore the association between FIB and cerebral ischemic events. The receiver operating characteristic curve was performed, and the nomogram was constructed to evaluate the overall prediction ability of FIB in cerebral ischemic event. A total of 298 participants were enrolled in our study, of 126 cerebral ischemic events patients. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that FIB was independently associated with cerebral ischemic event in patients with dizziness (OR = 1.84, 95%CI [1.15, 2.92], p = 0.010). The cut-off value of FIB in predicting cerebral ischemic event was 2.43 g/L (AUC = 0.658). The nomogram showed that higher FIB level was associated with a greater risk of cerebral ischemic event (C-index = 0.800). Our study suggested that FIB may be a useful biochemical parameter for identifying cerebral ischemic event in patients with dizziness/vertigo. © 2021. Fondazione Società Italiana di Neurologia.
