Abstract

Increasing evidence suggests the involvement of the cerebellum in non-motor functions. We describe a patient who presented speech deficits after a right cerebellar infarction without other cognitive impairments. 99mTc-HMPAO single-photon emission computed tomography showed a marked hypoperfusion in the right cerebellar hemisphere, but did not show crossed cerebellar-cerebral diaschisis. The absence of neuroradiological evidence of structural supratentorial lesions supports the cerebellar role in modulating not only the motor system, but also higher order functions.
