A-15-years-old Caucasian male with not previous medical history experienced a rapid onset of dizziness. On neurological admission the patient was nervous, there were no cognitive defcit. Clinical eye movements examination revealed frequent horizon- tal and symmetric involuntary burst of large to-and fro.
