Abstract

Pathological tilts of the subjective visual vertical (SVV) in the roll plane are most sensitive and frequent clinical vestibular signs of unilateral lesions extending from the labyrinths via the brainstem and thalamus to the cortex. SVV deviations in cortical lesion are usually related with the parietoinsular vestibular cortex or superior temporal gyrus. We report isolated dizziness with contralesional SVV tilt with a focal infarction restricted to the right temporo-parieto-occipital junction.
