Case Report

ABSTRACT: Although vertigo is a common complaint with patients presenting to an ED, some uncommon causes also must be considered. This report focuses on a woman who developed sudden-onset vertigo with associated mental status changes after a long-distance flight. Her symptoms were consistent with mal de debarquement syndrome, an uncommon cause of vestibular dysfunction.
