Skew deviation is a rare side effect of intratympanic gentamicin injection for intractable Meniere's disease. When the skew deviation is accompanied by pathologic head tilt and ocular torsion, the result is an ocular tilt reaction (OTR). The authors report the case of a 56-year-old man with refractory Meniere's disease who developed binocular vertical diplopia following intratympanic gentamicin injection and was found to have skew deviation and a partial ocular tilt reaction. The authors also review the reported cases of skew deviation following intratympanic gentamicin and confirm this phenomenon, which has only rarely been reported in the literature.
