Abstract

The combination of periodic alternating nystagmus (PAN) and periodic alternating skew deviation (PASD) is rare. We report a case of PAN and PASD in a patient with spinocerebellar ataxia type 6 (SCA-6) and discuss the role of the cerebellum as a plausible mechanism for this combined pathologic condition.
