Pseudo-spontaneous nystagmus in lateral semicircular canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.

OPEN Clinical and experimental otorhinolaryngology | 4 Dec 2012

HJ Lee, YH Kim, SK Hong and HJ Kim
Abstract
Spontaneous nystagmus, which has been considered a typical sign of acute vestibulopathy, has recently been reported in benign paroxysmal positional vertigo involving the lateral semicircular canals (LC-BPPV) without unilateral vestibulopathy (pseudo-spontaneous nystagmus, PSN), but research about its clinical application is still limited. Here we investigate the frequency and characteristics of PSN in LC-BPPV patients, and estimate its prognostic value.
