Examination demonstrated a left hypertropia that worsened in right and down gaze as well as in left head tilt, and a left 4th nerve palsy was diagnosed. There was also evidence of a mild motility deficit in down/medial gaze OS, consis...Image/MovingImage
152 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 ...
153 Enhanced ptosis in Myasthenia GravisThis is a 20-yo-woman who presented with generalized weakness, ptosis and ophthalmoplegia. She had severe ptosis OU at baseline, but when one eyelid was manually elevated, there was marked enhanced ptosis of the opposite eyelid. This was in accordance with Hering's law of equal innervation of the le...Image/MovingImage
154 Saccadic dysmetria and ocular lateropulsion in lateral medullary strokeThis is a 30-yo-man who suffered a right lateral medullary stroke. Examination showed saccadic hypermetria to the right (ipsilesional), hypometria to the left (contralesional)and rightward ocular lateropulsion (ipsilesional), common ocular motor features of the lateral medullary syndrome. Saccadic h...Image/MovingImage
155 Slow abducting saccade in 6th nerve palsy40-yo-man with a right fascicular 6th nerve palsy due to stroke. There was improvement and only a minimal residual right abduction paresis OD by this visit, but still a relatively slow right abducting saccade seen in the video, especially apparent in the slow motion segment. Video shows slow abduct...Image/MovingImage
156 Pseudo-INOs in myasthenia gravisThis is a 55-yo-woman with an intermittent exotropia who had normal adduction OU, but clear lag of adducting saccades OD>OS with rapid horizontal saccades. This was much more apparent after repeat testing (ie, it was fatigable), and she wound up having ocular MG.Image/MovingImage
157 Two patients with Parinaud's syndrome with slow upward saccades and normal upward range of movementsPresented here are two patients with Parinaud's syndrome: Patient 1) suffered a hemorrhage of the dorsal midbrain causing slow upward saccades (with convergence retraction nystagmus, but normal vertical range of eye movements), and light-near dissociation, and Patient 2) had a germinoma of the dorsa...Image/MovingImage
158 Cerebellar eye signs in SCA8This is a 30-yo-man with a diagnosis of SCA 8 who had appendicular and gait ataxia in addition to choppy smooth pursuit and VORS, downbeat nystagmus, saccadic hypermetria, and gaze-evoked nystagmus with rebound nystagmus. He also had an esotropia worse at distance, which is commonly found with cereb...Image/MovingImage
159 INO in multiple sclerosisDescription: This video includes 3 patients each with a known history of MS found to have unilateral or bilateral INOs on their exam. In the first 2 patients, the INOs are relatively subtle with normal adduction. However, with rapid horizontal saccades, an adduction lag is apparent which is suggesti...Image/MovingImage
160 INOs in strokeThis video shows 3 patients with vascular risk factors who suffered strokes of the MLF resulting in unilateral INO in each case. In the second case, INO was diagnosed status post cardiac catherization and MRI was found to be normal. In the third case, the patient had a clear left medial rectus palsy...Image/MovingImage
161 Parinaud's syndrome with impaired upward saccades and otherwise normal vertical eye movementsThis is a 50-yo-man who suffered a dorsal midbrain stroke. Exam demonstrated normal vertical range of eye movements, normal vertical VOR and smooth pursuit, but inability to perform upward saccades. Another feature of Parinaud's syndrome seen on his exam was light-near dissociation (not shown in thi...Image/MovingImage
162 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...
163 Test your knowledge - Parinaud's syndrome in neurosarcoidosisWatch the first segment of the video up to "Stop! What would you expect with vertical gaze?" and select the best response below. The patient also has mild right-beating nystagmus which can be ignored for the purposes of this question. ; A.; The patient has pupillary findings consistent with bilatera...
164 Sagging eye syndrome and cerebellar disease in divergence insufficiencyThis is a 70-year-old woman who presented with diplopia at distance. Her exam demonstrated orthophoria at near with a fairly comitant 8-10 PD esotropia at distance without abduction paresis, consistent with divergence insufficiency (DI). With age, patients may develop an esodeviation greater at dist...
165 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. Months after the onset, the patient was seen in clinic and had no horizontal eye movements (pursuit, saccades, VOR) in either eye, suggestive of bilateral nuclear 6th nerve palsies...Image/MovingImage
166 Downbeat nystagmus and cerebellar atrophyThis is a 40-year-old man with 2 years of progressive ataxia and oscillopsia. On examination, he had downbeat nystagmus (DBN), an ocular motor finding that is usually (but not always) associated with flocculus/paraflocculus dysfunction, which causes overaction of the anterior canal (upward or anti-g...
167 Upbeating and gaze-evoked nystagmus, V-pattern esotropia from bilateral 4th nerve palsiesImage/MovingImage
168 Oscillopsia: a common symptom of bilateral vestibular lossThis video is an example of what a patient with bilateral vestibular loss experiences while walking. Without a VOR, there is no mechanism to ensure retinal stability of the world with each head movement, and oscillopsia (illusion of movement of the stationary environment) is the result. Jumpy vision...Image/MovingImage
169 Saccadic intrusions with an intersaccadic intervalSeen here are patients with saccadic intrusions that have preserved intersaccadic intervals. Although square wave jerks (SWJ) are present in everyone to some degree at times, when prominent or when they interfere with vision, neurodegenerative conditions should be considered, mainly those involving ...Image/MovingImage
170 Typical features of Duane syndrome type 1This is a patient seen for vestibular complaints, who on exam, was found to have (unrelated to her vestibular symptoms) impaired abduction OS. In adduction, there was narrowing of the palpebral fissure OS, a result of globe retraction due to co-contraction of the medial and lateral rectus muscles. T...Image/MovingImage
171 Chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia (CPEO) and cerebellar signsThis is a 60-yo-woman who initially presented with imbalance and ophthalmoparesis. Initially, there was mild horizontal gaze limitation with mild gaze-evoked nystagmus and slow saccades, and over the years, gait ataxia and dysarthria (mainly a scanning quality to her speech) developed, and her ophth...Image/MovingImage
172 Medullary structures relevant to upbeat nystagmusThis is an axial section of the medulla, slightly more caudal as compared to (please refer to figure "medullary structures relevant to the ocular motor and vestibular consequences of the lateral medullary (Wallenberg) syndrome). Again seen are the inferior cerebellar peduncle (ICP) and caudal aspect...
173 Coronal section of the brainstem showing ocular motor nuclei and anatomy of the vestibular nucleus (with SCC inputs)(A) Seen here is a coronal view of the brainstem showing the locations of the ocular motor nuclei (IIIrd, IVth, VIth) as well as the nuclei of VII and VIII (vestibular and cochlear). The vestibular nucleus (VN) is divided into the inferior, lateral, medial, and superior subnuclei, and the medial ves...
174 Eyelid anatomySeen here are the major muscles of eyelid opening and closure. The levator palpebrae, which is innervated by the oculomotor nerve, inserts on the tarsus via the levator aponeurosis and directly on the skin of the upper eyelid. The superior tarsal muscle (also known as Muller's muscle, which is inner...
175 Unilateral 3rd, 4th, and 6th nerve palsies due to cavernous sinus meningiomaThis is a 50-year-old woman presenting with a partial 3rd nerve palsy (mild pupil involvement), partial 6th nerve palsy, and no clear incyclotorsion with downgaze, suggestive of additional 4th nerve palsy, all on the left.
