Conclusions: VSS is likely associated with either hyperactive visual cortices or, alternatively, impaired processing of simultaneous afferent information projecting to cortex. VSS likely results from widespread disturbance of sensory processing resulting in sensory misperception. There may be a number of syndromes associated with impaired sensory processing resulting in sensory misperception, including migraine, persistent perceptual postural dizziness, and tinnitus, which overlap with VSS. Elucidation of abnormality in one defined syndrome may provide a path forward for investigating all.

We report a case of a 49-year-old industrial vehicles mechanic who was projected to the ground by the explosion of the tire of a heavy truck he was inflating. In the following hours he presented various neurological signs and symptoms and was admitted to the Emergency Department. During hospitalization the patient underwent clinical and instrumental investigations with AngioCT and MR finding of left internal carotid artery dissection in correspondence of its cervical segment and three acute ischemic lesions in the left temporal, parietal and occipital lobes. Medical management was successful and the patient was discharged ...

Cirsoid aneurysm is an arteriovenous fistula of the scalp, which is unconnected by intracranial or cerebral vessels. Variceal dilatation of draining veins can produce cosmetic concerns, masses, local pain, palpable thrills and audible bruits, headache, tinnitus and hemorrhage. Its etiopathogenesis is not well understood. The treatment includes surgery (since fistula repair by simple surgical ligation until gross total resection), embolization (whether percutaneous or endovascular) or a combination of the two.

To the Editor In a report on 21 US diplomatic staff who became unwell in Cuba, the authors rejected the possibility of a functional neurological disorder as the etiology. We disagree. The accompanying Editorial pointed out that functional neurological disorders are genuine and not malingering. Patients with functional disorders typically pass cognitive tests of effort, and there is no epidemiological evidence to suggest that they seek time away from the workplace. Functional disorders are typically persistent and commonly coexist with, or are triggered by, minor pathophysiological or psychophysiological processes. In many ...
