6 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 ...Image/MovingImage

10 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).

11 The Apogeotropic Variant of Horizontal Canal BPPVThis is a patient with the apogeotropic (nystagmus beating towards the sky) variant of right horizontal canal (HC) benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). In a patient with geotropic (nystagmus beating towards the ground) HC BPPV, by rapidly moving from a sitting to a supine position with the h...Image/MovingImage
12 Bilateral INOs and partial 3rd nerve palsiesThis is a 45-year-old man with progressive ptosis and ophthalmoparesis. 10 years prior to presentation, he experienced diplopia and had a hyperintense lesion involving the medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF) per report. Over time, he developed bilateral adduction paresis, ptosis and upgaze paresis ...Image/MovingImage
13 Anti-GAD Associated Cerebellopathy and Bilateral VestibulopathyThis is a 70-year-old woman with the subacute onset of severe imbalance and dizziness. On her initial examination, she had prominent gaze-evoked nystagmus and bilateral vestibular loss. Smooth pursuit was saccadic, although her vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) suppression was much smoother. Usually pur...Image/MovingImage
14 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...Image/MovingImage
15 Bilateral INOs Due to StrokeThis is a 65-year-old man with multiple vascular risk factors who experienced the abrupt onset of diplopia 6 months prior to this video. MRI done within 24 hours of onset was unremarkable. Examination demonstrated subtle bilateral adduction lag with horizontal saccades. There was very mild abducting...Image/MovingImage

18 Bruns Nystagmus Due o a Cerebellopontine Angle TumorThis is a 15-yo-girl who experienced headache and imbalance leading to an MRI which showed a left sided cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumor. Because of involvement of the left brainstem/cerebellum (e.g., dysfunction of the neural integrator/gaze holding apparatus) by the CPA mass, there was left-beat...Image/MovingImage

21 Evaluation of ConvergenceThe assessment of convergence includes measuring alignment at near versus distance (see video, https://collections.lib.utah.edu/details?id=187677), near point of convergence and convergence amplitude.
