Abstract

Following an episode of syncope, a 42-year-old woman was referred to exclude a cardiac cause. This primary event was determined to be a straightforward case of vasovagal syncope, resulting in mild head trauma. Following this, the patient was left with symptoms of dizziness and a subjective "muzzy" sensation. Initially assumed to be a form of "post-concussive symptom", she was referred to a neurologist who employed neurovestibular manoeuvres to both determine the cause of these symptoms and satisfactorily resolve them.
