Usual clinical syndromes in cerebellar infarcts include the pseudotumoral and the pseudovestibular forms. Less often, cerebellar infarcts may produce cerebellar disturbances or remain asymptomatic. The authors report a case with a right juxta-pontobulbar cerebellar infarct involving the flocculo-nodular lobe. No vertigo, cerebellar or oculomotor symptoms were present, but the patient showed an isolated axial latero-pulsion towards the affected side. The nature and mechanisms of this previously unreported syndrome are discussed.
