We present an unusual case of a patient with a positive Tullio phenomenon, brief Valsalva-induced transient horizontal nystagmus, reduced left caloric response, and bilateral vestibulo-ocular reflex loss. This study discusses the pathophysiology and differential diagnosis concerning the suspected pathology for the phenomenon of utricular hydrops or vestibular atelectasis and presents a literature review.
