Pains, chills, fatigue, vomiting and vertigo plagued me. Small fiber neuropathy caused it all.

Even neurologists will often miss this ailment. But depending on the cause, prompt treatment might reverse the disease’s progression and allow symptoms to resolve.

CONCLUSIONS: In VFT analysis of SSNHL with dizziness, diverse patterns were identified. In the absence of SN, no definite vestibular organ involvement was the most frequent. But in the case with SN, posterior canal deficit was most common and cerebellar ischemic stroke was rare. PMID: 32623411 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Sweety Trivedi, Ashis Datta, Santosh Trivedi, A Shobhana, Dipendra K Pradhan, Kajari Bhattacharya, Moulima BanerjeeNeurology India 2020 68(3):677-680 Bruns syndrome is characterized by attacks of sudden severe headache, vomiting, and vertigo precipitated due to abrupt movements of the head due to presence of mobile deformable intraventricular lesion causing episodic obstructive hydrocephalus. Proposed underlying mechanism is intermittent or positional CSF obstruction resulting from ball-valve mechanism. Most common etiologies are NCC and intraventricular tumors. Here we present an unusual case of Bruns syndrome that was i...

Conclusion RESLES manifests as variety of symptoms with less specificity and precipitating factors. Paroxysmal blurred vision may be a relatively specific symptom of RESLES. Levetiracetam, carbamazepine or valproate could be the cause of RESLES, exposure to the rabies vaccine could be another predisposing factors for RESLES as well. RESLES type 1 was therefore found to be highly "reversible" with an excellent prognosis. PMID: 32611957 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractAtlanto-axial instability (AAI) is common in the connective tissue disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, and increasingly recognized in the heritable disorders of Stickler, Loeys-Dietz, Marfan, Morquio, and Ehlers-Danlos (EDS) syndromes, where it typically presents as a rotary subluxation due to incompetence of the alar ligament. This retrospective, IRB-approved study examines 20 subjects with Fielding type 1 rotary subluxation, characterized by anterior subluxation of the facet on one side, with anormal atlanto-dental interval. Subjects diagnosed with a heritable connective tissue disorder, and AAI had failed n...

Conclusions: PC-BPPV-ca is the most common among patients with BPPV, followed by HC-BPPV-ca. In emerging and controversial BPPV, MC-BPPV, and Pos-BPPV were more common. For the diagnosis of Pos-BPPV, a combination of the history of typical BPPV, particle repositioning therapy and follow-up outcome is helpful to clarify the diagnosis.

Authors: Jafarov S, Hizal E, Bahcecitapar M, Ozluoglu LN Abstract BACKGROUND: Positional nystagmus elicited by the Dix-Hallpike maneuver often reverses its direction as the patient is re-seated from the provoking head hanging position. The incidence of reverse nystagmus and its association with prognosis in posterior canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (pcBPPV) is not clear. OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence of upright positioning-related reverse nystagmus and its association with the success of canalith repositioning (Epley) maneuver (CRM) treatment in pcBPPV. METHODS: The records of patients th...

Authors: Togha M, Martami F, Abdollahi M, Mozafari M, Cheraghali H, Rafiee P, Shafaei M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Despite the available prophylactic and acute drugs for migraine management, this disabling disorder remains undertreated especially among pediatrics. In this review, the authors aim at assessing the preventive role cinnarizine plays in treating migraine based on previously published studies. AREAS COVERED: Randomized clinical trials, randomized controlled trials, non-randomized open-label trials and retrospective studies concerning cinnarizine in migraine prevention in children and adults were reviewed. Es...

Abstract Bartter-Gitelman syndromes are rare inherited autosomal recessive salt-losing tubulopathies characterized by severe and chronic hypokalemia associated with metabolic alkalosis and secondary hyperaldosteronism. Bartter syndrome results from a furosemide-like defect in sodium reabsorption in the Henle's loop leading to hypercalciuria and defect in urinary concentration capacity. The antenatal Bartter syndrome is defined by polyhydramnios and an infantile polyuria with severe dehydration whereas classic Bartter syndrome appears during childhood or adulthood. Gitelman syndrome is a thiazide-like salt-losing t...

AbstractVertigo is the sensation of spinning or having one ’s surroundings spin about them. It represents about 25% of cases of occurrences of dizziness Yardley et al. (Br J Gen Pract 48(429):1131–1135, 1998). About 40% patients have peripheral vestibular dysfunction (Neuhauser in Curr Opin Neurol 20:40–46, 2007). Quality of life (QOL) is significantl y impaired by vertigo (Patatas et al. in Braz J Otorhinolaryngol 75:387–394, 2009). To study the effect and compare vestibular exercises on QOL in patients with vestibular disorders. 120 individuals with vestibular disorders like acoustic neuroma, vest...
