12 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.

13 Pons: 6th and 7th Nerve Anatomy and the Central Segmental 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; Inter Nuclear Ophthalmoplegia; INO; One and a Half; Horizontal Gaze Palsy; OMS Pons; Facial Nerve; Oculopalatal
14 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
15 Pontine hemorrhage causing oculopalatal tremor and multiple cranial neuropathiesThis is a 45-yo-woman who had a dorsal pontine cavernoma that bled 2 years prior to this video. Symptoms included diplopia and oscillopsia.

16 Slow Saccades Due to Unilateral Paramedian Pontine Reticular Formation (PPRF) Injury with Preserved Movements Using the Vestibulo-Ocular ReflexThis is a 60-year-old man who presented for imbalance and oscillopsia 10 months after surgery and 8 months after radiation for Merkel cell carcinoma of the neck. He developed imbalance after surgery and diplopia and oscillopsia 6 months prior to our evaluation. MRI showed enhancement of both 6th n...Abnormal Saccades; Pons OMS; Sixth Abducens Nerve; Abnormal VOR; Vestibulocochlear Nerve; Horizontal Gaze Palsy
17 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...Sixth (Abducens) Nerve Palsy; Abnormal Saccades
18 Third and Sixth Nerve Palsies Due to Cavernous Sinus MeningiomaThis is a 60-year-old woman with a large meningioma that was compressing the right cavernous sinus. Examination demonstrated a pupil-involving right 3rd nerve palsy with near complete external ophthalmoplegia (involving levator palpebrae, medial rectus, superior rectus, inferior rectus). There was a...Third Nerve Palsy; Fourth Nerve Palsy; Sixth Nerve Palsy
19 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...Abnormal Range, Duane Syndrome, Sixth Nerve Palsy
20 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.
