Vestibular neuritis is characterized by rapid onset of vertigo, nausea and vomiting without neurological symptoms or signs, but central vestibular lesions can cause similar symptoms and signs. A 66-year-old woman previously diagnosed with ovarian cancer initially presented with vertigo. The patient had typical symptoms and signs of vestibular neuritis. As time proceeded, the patient presented with bilateral catch-up saccade and the symptoms and signs of cerebellar dysfunction. Magnetic resonance image and computed tomography scan showed brain metastasis surrounded by edematous lesion. We report an ovarian cancer patient with metastasis mimicking vestibular neuritis with a review of related literature.
