The authors report two patients with cerebellar infarctions in the territory of the medial branch of the
posterior inferior cerebellar artery who had vertigo, spontaneous ipsilesional nystagmus, and contralesional truncal
lateropulsion. Although one of the two patients had slight dysmetria, overall signs closely mimicked those of acute
peripheral vestibulopathy. The authors suggest that interruption of nodulouvular inhibitory projections to vestibular
nuclei may account for the vestibular signs.
