An Adult Case of Acute EBV Cerebellitis
KeywordsEpstein-Barr virus, infectious mononucleosis, cerebellitis
Acute neurological manifestations of infectious mononucleosis are uncommon and have been predominantly reported in the paediatric population. We report a case of acute Epstein-Barr virus cerebellitis in an adult in whom spontaneous resolution of symptoms and signs occurred after 2 weeks of supportive treatment. An infective cause for an acute cerebellar syndrome in an adult must always be considered in the differential diagnosis when appropriate.
