• A kindred is presented in which several members had complaints of head movement-dependent oscillopsia due to acquired vestibular areflexia in combination with progressive hearing loss. History was noncontributory for other neurologic or otologic diseases (including infectious diseases) or use of neuro-ototoxic drugs. The pedigree suggests autosomal dominant inheritance.
