176 Multiple lower cranial neuropathies following carotid endarterectomyThis is a patient who underwent a right carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Following the surgery, multiple right sided lower cranial nerves were involved. In his case, there was trapezius and sternocleidomastoid weakness and atrophy on the right, indicative of right CN XI injury. There was an absent gag ...video/mp4
177 Multiple cranial neuropathies due to glomus tumorThis is a woman who was diagnosed with a right sided glomus tumor, and subsequently underwent resection. Seen here are multiple cranial neuropathies related to the tumor itself as well as to the surgery. She cannot abduct the right eye due to a right CN VI palsy. She has a right lower motor neuron f...video/mp4
178 The acute vestibular syndrome with skew deviation, gaze-evoked nystagmus, and bilaterally abnormal head impulse testing due to AICA strokeThis is a 60-year-old man with the acute onset of prolonged vertigo and nystagmus, consistent with the acute vestibular syndrome (AVS). HINTS (Head Impulse, Nystagmus, Test of Skew) exam demonstrated a central pattern: 1) Head impulse test (HIT) was abnormal to the right and to the left. An abnormal...video/mp4
179 The acute vestibular syndrome with dysarthria, dysphagia, dysphonia, hemi-ataxia, and saccadic dysmetria due to the lateral medullary (Wallenberg) syndromeThis is a 50-year-old woman with the acute onset of vertigo, dysarthria, dysphagia and dysphonia/hoarseness (nucleus ambiguus), ptosis and imbalance. Her examination localized to a left lateral medullary (Wallenberg) syndrome - there was decreased sensation on the left side of the face (spinal trige...video/mp4
180 Ocular bobbing due to hepatic encephalopathyThis is a 55-year-old man presented with hepatic encephalopathy, and found to have ocular bobbing. Head CT did not show any acute changes. Ocular bobbing almost always localizes to the pons, although cerebellar pathology has also (rarely) been identified as a cause. Typical bobbing consists of rhyth...video/mp4
181 Oculogyric crisisThis is a patient with neuroleptic-induced oculogyric crisis.video/mp4
182 Neuro-ophthalmic features and pseudo-MG lid signs in Miller Fisher syndromeThis is a 51-year-old woman who presented with imbalance, acute onset dizziness and diplopia that developed over three days following two weeks of upper respiratory infection and bacterial conjunctivitis. When she was initially seen as an outpatient, nystagmus was noted to the right and left, and a ...video/mp4
183 Neuro-ophthalmic features and pseudo-MG lid signs in Miller Fisher syndrome - Figure 1This is a 51-year-old woman who presented with imbalance, acute onset dizziness and diplopia that developed over three days following two weeks of upper respiratory infection and bacterial conjunctivitis. When she was initially seen as an outpatient, nystagmus was noted to the right and left, and a ...image/jpeg

186 Vibration and hyperventilation-induced nystagmus from vestibular schwannomaThis is a 50-yo-woman with imbalance, and with fixation removed on her examination (with Frenzel goggles), there was no spontaneous nystagmus. Using a handheld vibrator to vibrate the mastoids and vertex, there was a rightward slow phase and corrective leftward fast phase (left-beating nystagmus). V...video/mp4
187 "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...video/mp4
188 Semicircular pathwaysOnce the semicircular canal fibers leave the peripheral labyrinth, they synapse in the ipsilateral vestibular nucleus, and then ascend to the ocular motor nuclei. This enables the vestibulo-ocular reflex to respond to head movements in the plane of any canal or combination of canals.application/pdf
189 Rotary Chair TestingRotary chair testing includes rotation around a vertical axis, and evaluates the horizontal semicircular canal vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR). The patient sits in a mechanized chair with the head secured in a neutral position or in 30 degree forward flexion (to better isolate the horizontal canals)....application/pdf
190 Eye closure and oculopalatal tremorThis patient suffered a traumatic brain injury with brainstem injury resulting in damage to Mollaret's triangle and palatal tremor. Inferior olivary hypertrophy was noted on her MRI, although no vertical and/or torsional pendular nystagmus was present even when observing closely with the ophthalmosc...video/mp4
191 Triangle of Guillain-MollaretSeen here is a schematic representation of the Gullain-Mollaret triangle (Figure 1), also referred to as the dentato-olivary pathway, reflecting the 3 points of this imaginary triangle - 1) dentate nucleus, 2) red nucleus, and 3) inferior olivary nucleus. The olive sends decussating climbing fibers ...image/jpeg
192 Subtle torsional pendular nystagmus in oculopalatal tremor (OPT)This is a 50-year-old woman who presented with imbalance, and MRI demonstrated a right cerebellar cavernous malformation. She underwent surgery to resect the malformation, and post-operatively experienced right hemiparesis and ataxia. Six months after the surgery, balance worsened and vision became ...video/mp4
193 Subtle torsional pendular nystagmus in oculopalatal tremor (OPT) - Figure 1This is a 50-year-old woman who presented with imbalance, and MRI demonstrated a right cerebellar cavernous malformation. She underwent surgery to resect the malformation, and post-operatively experienced right hemiparesis and ataxia. Six months after the surgery, balance worsened and vision became ...image/jpeg
194 Provocative maneuvers (removal of fixation, vibration, head-shaking) to accentuate peripheral vestibular nystagmus)With an acute destructive process like vestibular neuritis that causes significant unilateral vestibular loss, spontaneous nystagmus is always present. However, over days to months, spontaneous nystagmus should resolve completely. In a patient with vestibular neuritis involving the right side, left-...video/mp4
195 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 ...video/mp4
196 Horizontal Canal - BPPV: Gufoni for right apogeotropicTo treat the right apogeotropic (beating towards the sky with right ear down and with left ear down - e.g., left beating nystagmus with right supine roll test or with right ear down; right beating nystagmus with left supine roll test or with left ear down) horizontal canal (HC) variant: • The pati...video/mp4
197 Horizontal Canal - BPPV: BBQ Roll to treat the right sideTo treat right horizontal canal (HC)-BPPV (each position maintained for at least 30 seconds or until nystagmus and/or vertigo cease): • First the patient is placed in the long-sitting position • Then in a supine position with the head elevated 30 degrees • Then the patient's head (or whole bod...video/mp4
198 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...video/mp4
199 Superior Canal DehiscenceThis is a 60-yo-man who complained of autophony (eg, hearing his own heartbeat, noting that his own voice sounded too loud) and dizziness triggered with loud noises and straining at times. With pinched-nose Valsalva maneuver, there was downbeat-torsional (towards the right ear) nystagmus, suggestive...video/mp4
200 Head-Shaking NystagmusHead-shaking nystagmus: With a peripheral lesion, similar to vibration, transiently accentuates vestibular asymmetry when baseline VOR function is asymmetric, central patterns are well described and have localizing value (e.g., causing vertical nystagmus after horizontal head-shaking, horizontal nys...video/mp4
