Isolated vertigo following lesions to the nucleus prepositus hypoglossi is extremely rare. Herein, we report a patient who presented with isolated central acute vestibular syndrome. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed acute infarction involving the isolated nucleus prepositus hypoglossi in the dorsal medial medulla oblongata and pons. The case illustrates that isolated acute vestibular syndrome can be caused by a rare nucleus prepositus hypoglossi infarction.
