Mal de debarquement syndrome: a forgotten entity?

Abstract

Mal de debarquement syndrome is defined by a persistent sensation of rocking and swaying commonly felt with sea travel that is first noted on return to land. Mal de debarquement syndrome is not to be confused with seasickness, which causes nausea, vomiting, diaphoresis, and headache. Four female patients with mal de debarquement syndrome are reviewed. Mal de debarquement is normally a short-lived phenomenon. The need for extensive evaluations may be avoided by an awareness of this entity.
