Background: Acquired See-saw Nystagmus (SSN) is a rare form of nystagmus characterized by elevation and intorsion of one eye with synchronous depression and intorsion of the contralateral eye in the first half cycle, followed by a reversal in the direction of the movements during the next half cycle. We herein report a case of a 47-year-old woman with a 3-year history of constant diplopia as a consequence of multiple neurosurgical interventions due to hemorrhage from a cavernous angioma located in the subthalamic region. She also had a history of major depressive disorder and ulcerative colitis. The patient underwent a surgical intervention with a 5 mm bilateral recession of the superior and inferior rectus muscles. Five years after surgery, the patient reported less recurrent and prominent episodes of transient horizontal deviation with horizontal diplopia, with a prevalence of well-being and comfort.
