Abstract

A 16-year-old boy with rotatory positional vertigo and nausea, particularly when lying down, visited our clinic.
Initially, we observed vertical-torsional downward-leftward nystagmus in the supine position, and it did not diminish.
In the sitting position, nystagmus was not provoked.
Neurological examinations were normal.
We speculated that persistent torsional down-beating nystagmus was caused by the light cupula of the posterior semicircular canal.
This case provides novel insights into the light cupula pathophysiology.
