1 A Comparison of Nystagmus and Saccadic Intrusions/OscillationsNystagmus can be classified into pendular and jerk waveforms, where both are generated by a slow, pathologic phase. Corrective phase (the position reset mechanism) differs. In pendular nystagmus, the eyes move back and forth with about the same velocity and amplitude, similar to that of a pendulum...Jerk Nystagmus; Flutter; Pendular Nystagmus; Square Wave Jerks; Opsoclonus,
2 Cerebellar Ataxia, Neuropathy, & Vestibular Areflexia Syndrome (CANVAS): Impaired Visually-Enhanced VOR and Abnormal Head Impulse TestingA 67 year old woman presented with 1 year of progressive numbness, gait instability, and oscillopsia when walking or with head movements. Examination showed excessive square-wave jerks, bilateral horizontal gaze-evoked nystagmus, impairment of the visually-enhanced vestibular ocular reflex (vVOR - s...VOR Abnormal, HIT Abnormal, Jerk Nystagmus, Gaze Evoked Nystagmus, Square Wave Jerks
3 Convergence Insufficiency and Square Wave Jerks in PSPThis is a 70-yo-woman with progressive supranuclear palsy with complaints of difficulty reading. Her husband noticed that she would frequently close one eye when attempting to read, and words were not clear on the page, and this would in fact improve by covering one eye. On her exam, she had a 1 pri...Convergence; Alignment; Convergence Insufficiency; Square Wave Jerks
4 Examples of patients with saccadic intrusions (square wave jerks)Seen here are patients with saccadic intrusions that do have an intersaccadic interval. Square wave jerks are commonly seen in degenerative conditions, mainly involving the posterior fossa (e.g., cerebellar degeneration) and basal ganglia (e.g., progressive supranuclear palsy).Square Wave Jerks
5 Ocular motor signs in progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP)This is a 65-yo-woman complaining of imbalance and double vision. She had significant convergence insufficiency (and would close her right eye with near viewing), providing an explanation for her diplopia. Convergence insufficiency is very common with parkinsonism. She had bradykinesia and rigidity,...Abnormal Pursuit, Abnormal Range, Upgaze Palsy, Downgaze Palsy, Mesencephalon, Square Wave Jerks
6 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 ...Square Wave Jerks
7 Square Wave Jerks and Macrosaccadic Oscillations in a Patient with a Cerebellar TumorThis is a 40-year-old man who developed severe headaches, confusion, and gait imbalance which led to neuroimaging which demonstrated a midline cerebellar mass with compression of the fourth ventricle and obstructive hydrocephalus. He underwent a suboccipital craniectomy for resection of the mass, an...Abnormal Saccades; Square Wave Jerks
8 Vertical gaze palsy and saccadic intrusions due to anti-Ri from head and neck carcinomaA 55-yo- woman was admitted for imbalance and double vision. Three weeks prior to presentation she first noticed swelling on the right side of her face and neck. CT of the head and neck showed right-sided cervical adenopathy and enlarged left retropharyngeal node. Ultrasound- guided biopsy of the n...OMS Mesencephalon, Square Wave Jerks, Upgaze Palsy, Downgaze Palsy, Abnormal Range, Skew, Vertical Gaze Palsy
