1 "Pseudonystagmus" due to bilateral vestibular loss and head tremorThis is a 65-yo-woman with complaints of imbalance, dizziness, and horizontal oscillopsia. On exam, she had a high frequency, low amplitude (mainly horizontal) head tremor, and with ophthalmoscopy, the optic nerve was clearly oscillating back and forth at the same frequency as her head tremor, which...Abnormal VOR HIT

9 Anterior Canal - BPPV: Deep head hangingRegardless or whether it is thought that the patient has right or left anterior canal (AC) involvement, the deep head hanging maneuver is performed in the same way. • First the patient is placed in the long-sitting position • Then the patient is moved into a supine position with the head in at l...Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo; BPPV; Anterior Canal; Deep head hanging; Exam; Examination
10 Anterior canal BPPVAlthough the anterior canal (AC) variant of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is rare, mainly owing to its orientation relative to gravity (which makes otoconial debris much less likely to enter it), it can occur. Because of the relatively para-sagittal orientation of the AC (more so than ...BPPV Anterior, BPPV Diagnosis, Jerk Nystagmus, Vestibular Nystagmus
11 Anti-GAD associated cerebellopathy and bilateral vestibulopathyThis is a 70-year-old woman with the subacute onset of severe imbalance and dizziness.

Smooth pursuit was saccadic, although her vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) suppression was much smoother. Usually pur...Abnormal Pursuit, Normal VORS, VOR Abnormal, HIT Abnormal, Jerk Nystagmus, Gaze Evoked Nystagmus
12 Apraclonidine testing in Horner's syndromeThis patient experienced relatively abrupt ptosis and was seen and diagnosed with a Horner's syndrome within a few days of the onset. There were no other exam findings and history did not offer clues as to the etiology. Neuroimaging of the oculosympathetic tract was unrevealing. Apraclonidine testin...Horner's Syndrome
13 Assessing for hyperventilation-induced nystagmusHyperventilation induced nystagmus is tested by asking the patient to take quick deep breaths (~1/s) for 40-60 seconds. This increases ICP and CSF pH. This can be helpful in diagnosing irritative conditions of the vestibular nerve, including an acoustic neuroma (see video, https://collections.lib....Hyperventilation
14 Atypical ocular motor features (gaze-evoked nystagmus) in PSPThis is a 70-yo-woman who met clinical and radiologic diagnostic criteria for progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). Typical ocular motor features of PSP include square wave jerks, hypometric saccades, choppy pursuit/VORS, impaired down>upgaze (supranuclear in origin) and impaired down>upward saccade...Abnormal Saccades, OMS Cerebellar, Jerk Nystagmus, Upbeat Nystagmus, Gaze Evoked Nystagmus
15 Bilateral 6th nerve palsies due to idiopathic intracranial hypertensionThis is a 25-year-old woman who presented with diplopia and blurry vision. On exam, she was found to have papilledema and bilateral 6th nerve palsies. Her opening pressure was >40 cm of water with a normal CSF analysis, and neuroimaging was unremarkable aside from subtle findings that have been asso...Sixth Nerve Palsy, Abnormal Range
16 Bilateral Horizontal Gaze Palsy and Oculopalatal Tremor Due to Pontine HemorrhageThis 70-yo-woman experienced headache and diplopia and was found to have a hemorrhage centrally within the dorsal pons.
