Abstract

CEREBELLAR MUTISM HAS been reported after surgery for posterior fossatumors in children and, rarely, in adults. The pathogenesis of this syndrome remains unclear, and controversy exists regarding whether it is a purely psychogenic disorder or an organic syndrome. The anatomicalsubstrate for the mutism also remains unknown. We encountered five cases of postoperative transient cerebellar mutism in a consecutive series of 63 children with posterior fossa tumors. These cases were analyzed and compared with the patients without mutism to find predictive factors for the occurrence of mutism, with the hope of elucidating further the pathophysiological mechanism. The most significant finding was the presence in all cases of a period of cerebellar dysarthria after resolution of the muteness. We, therefore, believe that cerebellar mutism is an extreme form of dysarthria, rather than a real cognitive deficit or a psychological disturbance.
