Deviations of the position of the eye in the roll plane, ocular torsion (OT), and the subjective visual vertical (SVV) were systematically studied in 111 patients with acute vascular brainstem lesions.

Seventy-one (83%) of 86 patients exhibited pathological static OT of one (47%) or both (36%) eyes. OT and SVV tilts are therefore sensitive signs in acute unilateral brainstem disorders… CONTINUE READING
