Unilateral cerebellar hypoplasia

Vagh JD, Gadekar A, Agrawal A, Deshmukh K - (2009 Apr-Jun)

Bottom Line: Unilateral cerebellar hypoplasia is a relatively rare malformation.We report the case of a 7-year-old boy who presented with a history of a fall, which was followed by cerebellar signs.The child recovered with conservative management, probably because the cerebellar signs were due to the trauma and not the hypoplasia itself.

ABSTRACT

Unilateral cerebellar hypoplasia is a relatively rare malformation. We report the case of a 7-year-old boy who presented with a history of a fall, which was followed by cerebellar signs. Imaging findings suggested a diagnosis of unilateral cerebellar hypoplasia. The child recovered with conservative management, probably because the cerebellar signs were due to the trauma and not the hypoplasia itself.

Figure 0002: T1W coronal MRI images show left cerebellar hypoplasia (arrows)

Mentions: A CT scan showed hypoplasia of the left cerebellar hemisphere, a large cisterna magna, and asymmetry of the posterior fossa: the left side being smaller than the right [Figure 1]. The smaller size of the left cerebellar hemisphere could be better appreciated on MRI [Figure 2]. Based on these imaging findings, a diagnosis of unilateral cerebellar hypoplasia was made. The child was managed conservatively for the head injury and he recovered.
