The association between epilepsy and cerebellar pathology is well known. We studied a case with partial motor seizure and cerebellar angioma. Methods: 44 years old male with one partial motor seizure involving the right face and superior limb. Standard EEG, cortical mapping of bilateral ADM with magnetic stimulation, and MRI were performed before and after surgery of angioma of right cerebellar hemisphere. Results: EEG showed recurrant spikes at level of F3-C3. Cortical mapping demonstrated an sasymmetry of ADM representation (left cortex>right cortex). Some months after surgery EEG and cortical mapping were completely normal. Conclusion: our case demonstrated a relation between partial motor seizure and cerebellar inhibition. This was confirmed by complete recovery after removal of cerebellar angioma.
