Video shows bilateral 3rd nerve palsies with intact...Image/MovingImage
127 Unidirectional vestibular nystagmus60-yo-man with recurrent vertigo attacks - this video was taken during one of his typical attacks, and shows left-beating nystagmus that stayed left-beating in all directions of gaze, more in left gaze (in accordance with Alexander's Law), and less in right gaze. This pattern is more commonly seen w...Image/MovingImage

132 Gaze-evoked and rebound nystagmus in a cerebellar syndrome30-yo-man with the subacute onset of a cerebellar syndrome. After extensive evaluation and progression, it was thought that this represented an autoimmune process and there was some improvement with immunosuppression.

133 Cavernous sinus mass causing right 3rd and 4th nerve palsies25-yo-man who complained of diplopia and was initially found to have right 4th and 6th nerve palsies in the setting of a right cavernous sinus mass (subsequently diagnosed as Ewing's sarcoma). When seen in follow-up (this video), there was a new right 3rd nerve palsy, still with a right 4th nerve pa...Image/MovingImage
134 Posterior canal BPPV with fixation and with fixation removedThis is a 60-yo-woman with positional vertigo. In the right Dix-Hallpike position with fixation removed, there was clear upbeat-torsional nystagmus (towards the lowermost right ear) which led to the diagnosis of right posterior canal BPPV. In right Dix-Hallpike with fixation there was mainly torsion...Image/MovingImage
135 The acute vestibular syndrome in MS due to middle cerebellar peduncle/root entry zone lesionThis is a 13 year-old girl with relatively abrupt onset vertigo and oscillopsia. On exam, there was primarily right-beating nystagmus in primary gaze with a slight upward (upbeat) component, giving the nystagmus an oblique appearance. The upward component and lack of a clear torsional component acut...Image/MovingImage
136 Trigeminal, Facial (with Aberrant Regeneration), and Vestibulocochlear Nerve Palsies Following Tumor ResectionThis is a 30-yo-woman who underwent resection of a right trigeminal schwannoma. Post-operatively, she was vertiginous with a clearly + head impulse test to the right (and spontaneous left-beating nystagmus), had lost hearing in the right ear, had no facial sensation on the right, and had a right low...Image/MovingImage
137 Complete peripheral vestibulopathy & ipsilateral facial palsy60-yo-man who suffered the fairly abrupt onset (over hours) of right lower motor neuron facial nerve palsy (7th cranial nerve), vertigo and deafness in the right ear (8th cranial nerve). Vesicles were noted on otoscopy, and herpes zoster infection (Ramsay Hunt) was diagnosed. Whereas many cases of "...Image/MovingImage
138 Central (Nuclear) 3rd Nerve PalsiesShown here are two patients with left sided midbrain pathology (hemorrhage and ischemia) which caused damage to the 3rd nucleus. Both of the patients have ipsilateral mydriasis, adduction, supra- and infraduction paresis. Ipsilateral>contralateral ptosis is also present, and localizes to the central...Image/MovingImage
139 Elliptical Pendular Nystagmus in MSThis is a 40-yo-woman with MS and bilateral optic nerve disease who presented with a year's long history of oscillopsia, which was related to elliptical pendular nystagmus. The appearance of elliptical nystagmus is the result of out of phase horizontal and vertical components. She had a variety of p...Image/MovingImage
140 Horizontal Gaze Palsy, Facial Nerve Palsy, and Nystagmus Due to Dorsal Pontine IschemiaPresented here are two patients with horizontal gaze and facial palsies due to stroke. The first patient is a 60-year-old man who presented with double vision and hemiparesis due to a right dorsal pontine ischemic stroke. His exam was significant for a right horizontal gaze palsy due to right 6th nu...Image/MovingImage
141 Latent nystagmus and DVD in infantile esotropiaThis is a 20-year-old woman with infantile esotropia (s/p strabismus surgery as a child) who demonstrated latent nystagmus and presumed dissociated vertical deviation (DVD) OS, which are commonly seen with infantile esotropia (also inferior oblique overaction and monocular nasotemporal asymmetry to ...Image/MovingImage
142 Miller Fisher Syndrome - Ophthalmoplegia, Ptosis and AtaxiaThis is a young man who presented with ptosis, difficulty moving the eyes and gait imbalance several weeks after a GI illness. Miller Fisher syndrome was diagnosed, IVIG therapy was initiated, and anti-Gq1b antibodies came back extremely elevated. In addition to ophthalmoplegia, and ataxia, hyporefl...Image/MovingImage
143 Miller Fisher Syndrome - Ophthalmoplegia and HyperreflexiaThis is a 45-yo-woman who presented with mild imbalance and diplopia. There had been a preceding viral illness several weeks prior. Examination demonstrated horizontal gaze paresis (sparing unilateral adduction), mild gait ataxia (no clear appendicular ataxia), and hyperreflexia. Pupils were sluggis...Image/MovingImage
144 One-and-a-half syndrome, facial palsy, and nystagmus due to dorsal pontine demyelinationThis is a 16-yo-girl with oscillopsia and double vision. Exam showed inability to look to the left with either eye due to left nuclear 6th. There was also a left INO (horizontal gaze palsy + INO = one-and-a-half syndrome) from left MLF involvement and left lower motor neuron facial palsy due to fasc...Image/MovingImage
145 Periodic Alternating Nystagmus due to Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 6This 50-yo-man complained of imbalance for several years and more recently oscillopsia. On examination, there was saccadic pursuit and VOR suppression in addition to gaze-evoked nystagmus with rebound, raising suspicion for a vestibulocerebellar localization. Additionally, there was periodic alterna...Image/MovingImage
146 Vertical-Torsional Pendular Nystagmus and Convergence Spasm Due to Anti-MaTa EncephalitisThis is a 50-yo-woman with debilitating oscillopsia due to a high frequency (6 Hz) vertical-torsional pendular (quantitative eye movement recordings were performed) nystagmus. She also had intermittent double vision due to (organic) convergence spasm. Her nystagmus and spasm were thought to be relat...Image/MovingImage
147 Torsional Jerk NystagmusPresented here are 3 patients with torsional jerk nystagmus. The first patient presented with vertigo and experienced oscillopsia due to her torsional nystagmus. Pure or predominantly torsional nystagmus is highly suggestive of a central process. Her nystagmus was unidirectional and followed Alexand...Image/MovingImage
148 Downbeat nystagmus and convergence spasmThis is a 60-yo-woman with vertical oscillopsia related to her downbeat nystagmus, and diplopia related to an intermittent esotropia. When the esotropia was present, with versions there were bilateral abduction deficits. With ductions and the vestibulo-ocular reflex, it was apparent that the range o...Image/MovingImage
149 riMLF Syndrome from Artery of Percheron StrokeThis is a 65-yo-man who suffered the abrupt onset of loss of consciousness followed by difficulty looking down. MRI showed bilateral rostral midbrain strokes in the distribution of the artery of Percheron. He could not initiate downward saccades and had fair upward saccades. However, downward vestib...Image/MovingImage
150 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.
