Diagnosis of combined peripheral and central vestibulopathy remains a challenge since the findings from peripheral vestibular involvements may overshadow those from central vestibular disorders or vice versa. The aim of this study was to enhance detection of these intriguing disorders by characterizing the clinical features and underlying etiologies. We had(More)
Diagnosis of central vestibulopathy remains a challenge when it is associated with peripheral vestibular dysfunction because neurotological findings from peripheral vestibulopathy may overshadow those from central vestibular involvements. To define the characteristics of disorders involving both peripheral and central vestibular structures, we classified(More)
Cheyne-Stokes respiration is an abnormal pattern of respiration characterized by alternating periods of apnea and hyperpnea with a crescendo-decrescendo pattern [1]. Each episode may last from 30 s to 2 min. It commonly occurs in patients with bilateral cerebral hemispheric lesions or cardiopulmonary dysfunction. The respiratory cycle is associated with the(More)
Even though dizziness is a common symptom of heat illness, comprehensive evaluation of the vestibular function has not been available in this potentially life-threatening disorder. Three patients developed vertigo about a week after heat exposure. Evaluation showed bilateral impairments of the vestibulo-ocular reflex during head impulses and the signs of(More)
Scrub typhus is an acute febrile infectious disease caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi. The illness is usually characterized by fever, rash, and lymphadenopathy, but severe cases progress to pulmonary and neurological involvement. We report a 69-year-old man who developed ptosis and ophthalmoplegia with a focal nodular lesion in the anterior cavernous sinus(More)
Mycoplasma pneumonia is a major pathogen of primary atypical pneumonia and has been known to cause various kinds of extrapulmonary manifestations involving almost all organs of the human body. Optic neuritis associated with M. pneumoniae infection has rarely been described and mostly, it combined other neurological complications including meningitis,(More)
