Habek, Mario and Gabelić, Tereza and Pavliša, Goran and Brinar, Vesna V. (2011) Central positioning upbeat nystagmus and vertigo due to pontine stroke. Journal of Clinical Neuroscience , 18 (7). pp. 977-978. ISSN 0967-5868 (Print)
We present a female patient with central positioning nystagmus and vertigo (c-PPV) due to a pontine stroke. To our knowledge this is the first report of central upbeat positioning nystagmus caused by pontine lacunar stroke. This report, together with those published previously, supports the existence of a crossing ventral tegmental tract in humans.
