This case report is about a 70-year-old man, who developed bilateral vestibulopathy due to intravenous gentamicin for endocarditis, and during admission he developed dizziness and oscillopsia. He was diagnosed with bilateral vestibulop-athy, when saccades were found on a video head impulse test (vHIT). The diagnosis was postponed by the lack of severe vertigo and nystagmus, which is seen in acute unilateral vestibulopathy. When gentamicin-induced vestibulapathy is suspected, a vHIT examination is recommended.
