Abstract

Dissociated vertical deviation should be included in the differential diagnosis of an ocular cause of head tilts. Forced contralateral head tilttesting will confirm whether dissociated vertical deviation is the cause if motor control of the dissociated vertical deviation worsens or becomes manifest rather than latent. The presence of an anomalous head posture in patients with dissociated vertical deviation can be improved with strabismus surgery.
