Abstract

Cerebellar infarction has been inadequately recognized by clinicians. A review of 75 cases showed that in 55 of them the infarct acted as an expanding mass lesion and compressed the brain stem. Once this occurred, the mortality without operation was very high. With surgical treatment, the mortality was reduced considerably. The computerized tomographic scan is the diagnostic test of choice.
