Patients with acute central vestibular syndrome (AVS) can mimic acute peripheral vestibulopathy, which can mislead to a diagnosis of posterior fossa infarcts. Delayed diagnosis will prevent relevant treatment and may lead to severe disability and in worst case death. Understanding of AVS is extremely relevant for physicians in hospital and prehospital care to insure the right treatment. I this case report of a 35-year-old male patient with AVS the correct diagnosis was made relatively late.
