COELI, Gustavo Nunes Medina et al. Acute cerebellitis with tonsillar herniation: a case report. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.4, pp. 244-246. ISSN 0100-3984. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-39842012000400015.
Acute cerebellitis is a rare inflammatory syndrome frequently characterized by fast onset of cerebellar dysfunction. The present case report describes imaging findings in a child with acute cerebellitis, tonsillar herniation and hypertensive hydrocephalus. The etiologic agent has not been determined. A conservative management was adopted, with corticoid and diuretic drugs. Imaging follow-up demonstrated resolution of the clinical condition with no sequela.
