A 33-year-old male patient presented with dizziness which increased with head movements like a self-reported sensation of walking-on-pillows. Routine test results were within the normal range. The vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) results were unable to be obtained and the sensory organization test (SOT) score was 7%. The patient was given a six-week customized vestibular rehabilitation program. After his complaints alleviated, his SOT scores were improved and VEMP waves were able to be obtained. In conclusion, clinicians should keep in mind that some patients may present with isolated otolith dysfunction and customized vestibular rehabilitation may offer benefits to these patients.
