Pancerebellar syndrome in heat stroke: clinical course and CT scan findings

Neuroradiology. 1987;29(3):294-6. doi: 10.1007/BF00451771.


We present the clinical course and computerized tomography (CT) findings in a case of pancerebellar syndrome due to heat stroke at the Mekkah Pilgrimage. CT scan was initially normal, but five months later, a considerable generalized cerebellar atrophy was seen despite remarkable clinical improvement.
