James L. Sheehy, MD, Los Angeles, Moderator: We have spent the morning on various testing and neurologic problems. In looking at the program four or five months ago, I thought it might be worthwhile to conduct this panel from a very practical standpoint, presenting a series of cases.
Each of the panelists has a folder which contains the case summary. I will read it to you, but you have it in front of you so that you can review it as we go along. You have no foreknowledge of what the cases are.
Case 1.—A 68-year old white female has had dizzy spells for three weeks. There was a severe spell of true vertigo about three weeks ago lasting for 30 minutes with nausea and vomiting. There were two further episodes which occurred of short duration requiring bed rest. There has been slight postural vertigo since that time.
