Abstract

Neoplastic meningitis remains a diagnostic challenge due to its varied clinical manifestations. We discuss a presentation with dizziness with an initial diagnosis of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. We highlight the hallmark findings and reflect on how clinicians may miss evolving features in recurrent attenders due to ‘anchoring’ to previous diagnoses.
