Hypomanic episode improved spontaneously after isolated acute cerebellar infarct: a case report.
Cerebellum provides functions to be maintained at a basal level by regulating mental performance by means of functional and anatomic links critical for cognition structures. The status emerging with the determination of cognitive and affective disorders after the posterior lobe injury of the cerebellum was termed as a “Cerebellar Cognitive Affective Syndrome” by Schmahmann and Sherman in 1998. The present report presents the clinical course in a patient with a diagnosis of hypomanic episode after cerebellar infarct.
