1 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...VOR HIT Abnormal, Horizontal Gaze Palsy, OMS PONS, Pendular Nystagmus, Oculopalatal
2 Brainstem ocular motor machinerySeen here is a sagittal view of the brainstem. The medulla has a significant role in gaze-holding, and the nucleus prepositus hypoglossi (NPH, along with the medial vestibular nucleus ) is the horizontal neural integrator. The abducens (6th) nucleus is located in the dorsal pons, and sends off the 6...Medulla OMS, Pons OMS, Mesencephalon OMS, Dorsal Midbrain OMS
3 Central HINTS (with an abnormal head impulse sign) in the acute vestibular syndrome due to lateral pontine/middle cerebellar peduncle demyelinationThis is a 30-year-old man presenting with vertigo, diplopia and mild left facial weakness (not seen in the video). On exam, there was right-beating nystagmus (RBN) in primary gaze that increased in right gaze (in accordance with Alexander's law), and the RBN stayed unidirectional, but lessened, in l...Abnormal Alignment, Vestibulocochlear, OMS Pons, Rotary Nystagmus, Vestibular Nystagmus, Acute Vestibular Nystagmus, Jerk Nystagmus, VOR HIT Abnormal

The vestibular nucleus (VN) is divided into the inferior, lateral, medial, and superior subnuclei, and the medial ves...Pons, Medullar OMS, Mesencephalon OMS, figures
5 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...One and half syndome; Horizontal gaze palsy; Pons; Jerk nystagmus; Upbeat nystagmus; Gaze evoked nystagmus; Facial nerve palsy; Internuclear ophthalmoplegia
6 Impaired smooth pursuit and other characteristic ocular motor findings in middle cerebellar peduncle strokeThis is a 50-year-old woman who underwent resection of a left-sided acoustic neuroma, and post-operatively, she had vertigo, binocular diplopia, left hemi-ataxia and severe gait ataxia. MR diffusion weighted imaging demonstrated an acute stroke involving the left middle cerebellar peduncle (MCP) and...Abnormal Pursuit, VOR-HIT Abnormal, Abnormal Alignment, Vestibulocochlear Nerve, OMS Pons, Jerk Nystagmus, Gaze-Evoked Nystagmus, Bruns Nystagmus, Vestibular Nystagmus, Acute Vestibular Syndrome
7 Medial longitudinal fasciculus syndrome with prominent spontaneous nystagmusThis is a 60-year-old man who experienced the abrupt onset of diplopia and imbalance. He had typical features of a left medial longitudinal fasciculus (MLF) syndrome including left internuclear ophthalmoplegia (INO) and left hypertropia from skew deviation, but he also had very prominent upbeat-tors...INO, Jerk Nystagmus, Upbeat Nystagmus, Rotary Nystagmus, Skew Deviation, OMS Pons, Abnormal Alignment, Abducting Nystagmus
8 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...PONS
9 Oculopalatal tremor and internuclear ophthalmoplegia due to hemorrhagic pontine cavernomaThis is a 60-year-old woman who experienced 2 episodes of vertigo, nausea and vomiting, which was felt to be related to recurrent hemorrhage of a pontine cavernoma that was adjacent to the fourth ventricle. The cavernoma was resected, and diplopia and left facial palsy were noted after the surgery. ...Pendular Nystagmus, Oculopalatal Tremor; INO; Pons OMS; Seventh Facial Nerve
10 Oculopalatal tremor and one-and-a-half syndrome due to pontine hemorrhageThis is a 65-year-old man who was put on a blood thinner, and shortly thereafter experienced a midline pontine hemorrhage, which was more dense on the left side. Immediately afterwards, right hemiparesis and hemi-anesthesia, left lower motor neuron (LMN) facial palsy and ophthalmoparesis were noted....Pendular Nystagmus; Oculopalatal Tremor; INO; One and a Half; Pons OMS; Seventh Facial Nerve; Sixth Abducens Nerve
11 Oculopalatal tremor with prominent nystagmus, bilateral horizontal gaze palsy, and bilateral facial palsiesThis is a 50-year-old woman who experienced the acute onset of right sixth and seventh nerve palsies and left hemiparesis. Two cavernomas within the right pons (one in the region of the facial colliculus) were demonstrated by MRI. Five years after her initial presentation she developed recurrent r...Abnormal Range, Sixth Nerve Palsy, Facial Nerve, Horizontal Gaze Palsy, OMS Pons, Pendular Nystagmus, Oculopalatal
12 Oculopalatal tremor with prominent nystagmus, bilateral horizontal gaze palsy, and bilateral facial palsies Figure 1Figure 1, MRI T2 sequence demonstrating hyperintensities involving bilateral inferior olives of the medulla. This is a 50-year-old woman who experienced the acute onset of right sixth and seventh nerve palsies and left hemiparesis.

13 One-and-a-half syndrome due to pontine hemorrhageThis is a 50-year-old woman who, while exercising in the gym, suddenly experienced vertigo, nausea, vomiting, tingling in the left arm, and diplopia. MRI demonstrated a brainstem hemorrhage that involved the right greater than left pons. Examination demonstrated a right horizontal gaze palsy due to ...Abnormal Saccades, Sixth Nerve Palsy, INO, One and a Half Syndrome, Jerk Nystagmus, Gaze Evoked Nystagmus
14 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.

15 Pons: 6th and 7th nerve anatomy and the central tegmental tractFrom this cross-section of the pons, the proximity of the 6th nucleus to the 7th nerve fascicles is apparent. This is the basis of the so-called facial colliculus syndrome, where an ipsilesional horizontal gaze palsy from a nuclear 6th lesion (usually related to stroke or demyelination) can be seen ...Sixth Nerve Palsy, INO, One and a Half, Horizontal Gaze Palsy, OMS Pons, Facial Nerve, Oculopalatal
16 Pons: 6th, 7th, 8th, and middle cerebellar peduncle anatomyFrom this cross-section of the pons, the proximity of the 7th and 8th fascicles can be appreciated, and a lateral inferior pontine syndrome (anterior inferior cerebellar artery territory), which could involve both of these fascicles, could cause acute prolonged vertigo accompanied by a + ipsilateral...Sixth Nerve Palsy, OMS Pons, Facial Nerve, VOR Normal, VOR Abnormal
