The authors present one case of bilateral infarction of the brain stem, in the territory of the antero-inferior cerebellar artery. Besides the fact that such bilateral ischaemic lesions are rare, the initial clinical presentation mimicking a vestibular neuronitis indicates that this latero-pontine syndrome may appear as a peripheral disorder. It also reminds clinicians that careful and repeated examinations should always be performed in all patients suffering from vertigo. An unusual iconography is also presented.
