Multiple Sclerosis

eye movements
Eye Movements

Transient spontaneous primary position upbeat nystagmus with lid nystagmus

Rapid bursts of horizontal square wave oscillations opening her eyes to fix on a target.

Horizontal gaze evoked rotary (torsional) nystagmus

(Rotation of the globe is best seen by observing conjunctival blood vessels).

eye movements3
Eye Movements

Gaze evoked unsustained upbeat nystagmus

Saccadic pursuit except on downgaze

SaccadicDysmetria

Hypermetria left gaze to center.

upbeat nystagmus
Upbeat Nystagmus

Localizes to the Caudal Medulla with lesion affecting the

Perihypoglossal group of nuclei including

nucleus intercalatus

nucleus of Roller

nucleus of pararaphales

upbeat nystagmus6
Upbeat Nystagmus

More rostral brainstem lesions may interrupt the ventral tegmental tract containing projections from the vestibular nuclei that receive inputs from the anterior semicircular canal

or

Involve the brachuim conjunctivum in the rostral pons and Medulla.
