Characteristics and Treatment Outcomes of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo in a Cohort of Veterans.

Conclusions: The characteristics and treatment outcomes of BPPV in our veteran cohort was similar to what has been reported in the general population. Future work should focus on improving the timeliness of evaluation and treatment of BPPV and examining the time course and management of residual dizziness.

Authors: King JE, Pape MM, Kodosky PN Abstract The National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE), on the campus of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, was developed to help improve the lives of active duty service members (SMs) with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and comorbid behavioral health (BH) conditions. During the NICoE intensive outpatient program, SM who have all been identified as having some degree of TBI, undergo extensive interdisciplinary evaluations, including comprehensive vestibular assessment. These SMs sometimes present with vestibular symptoms ranging from lightheadedness to vertigo ass...

Erdheim–Chester disease (ECD) is a rare form of non-Langerhans histiocytosis with deposition of lipid-laden macrophages in numerous organs. A 74-year-old man with a history of coronary artery disease, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia presented with nonspecific symptoms including back pain, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, and left leg pain. A neutrophil-predominant elevated WBC count and a bone biopsy revealing histiocytic proliferation positive for CD68 and CD163 and negative for S100 was noted. FDG PET/CT, MRA, and CTA images were obtained. We review the radiologic hallmarks of ECD and demonstrate the radiologic manifest...

AbstractHere, we report a case of a 64-year-old female with acute-onset vertigo, nausea, and vomiting. In an emergency imaging examination, the results of computed tomography (CT) and diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) were negative. However, on 1  day post-hospital admission, a small acute infarct in the posterolateral aspect of the left medulla was detected by DWI. Extra attention should be payed to the false-negative imaging results to avoid diagnosis and treatment delay.

“Live life to the fullest.” “Celebrate life.” “Carpe diem.” I’ve heard them all. But what if I don’t feel like it? What if I’m having a lousy brain day, restricted to a darkened room with a blinding headache, and seizing the day is not an option? I have clusters of malformed blood vessels called cavernous angiomas in my brain. Two of them bled, turning my life upside down with seizures and other symptoms. A few months later, I underwent resection surgeries to prevent future bleeds. The surgeries wreaked additional havoc — headaches, seizures, fatigue, short attent...
