Transient, directional changing spontaneous and provoked nystagmus in the course of lupus erythematodes visceralis


Vestibul dizziness in the course of Lupus erythematodes visceralis has not been investigated to any depth up until now. The observation of a transient, directional changing spontaneous and provoked nystagmus during an acute phase of the disease indicates that homogeneous short episodes of dizziness are probably not so rare, but the vestibular symptom, which possibly may be objectified only by Frenzel glases examination, becomes not realized or disregarded. Pathogenesis and formanalysis of nystagmus are discussed.
