Coronavirus disease 2019 and other factors have driven interest in conducting remote consultations, but there has been little research on this topic in neuro-otology. With suitable preparation, neuro-otology patients with dizziness can have remote assessments that include elements of neuro-otological physical examination, with tailored management and onward pathways arranged.
This paper reports experience with remote consultation in over 700 neuro-otology patient consultations and suggests a systematic approach, illustrated by a clinical case report and data on 100 consultations.
Remote consultations can play a role in neuro-otology clinics. Further research is needed to establish patient acceptability, diagnostic accuracy, safety and efficiency of remote models of care for this patient group.
Jugular foramen schwannomas are rare skull base tumours which typically have a variable clinical presentation. Glossopharyngeal syncope syndrome is an unusual clinical presentation; in the following case report, it was the sole presentation of an extracranial jugular foramen tumour.
The presentation of a patient with glossopharyngeal neuralgia syncope syndrome is reviewed and the pathophysiology, clinical features and treatment discussed.
A 45-year-old woman presented with unilateral throat pain, bradycardia and hypotension leading to episodes of impaired consciousness when lying on her left side or turning her head to the left. Imaging detected a left-sided extracranial jugular foramen schwannoma. The tumour was excised, and the patient had no more syncopal attacks.
Glossopharyngeal neuralgia syncope syndrome can be the sole presentation of a jugular foramen schwannoma. Although this syndrome may be treated with anti-dysrhythmic drugs, cardiac pacing or nerve section, in the presented patient excision of the jugular foramen schwannoma was successful in preventing further episodes of syncope.
