Abstract

Transient mutism following posterior fossa tumour resection in children iswell known in the literature. To our knowledge, this phenomenon has never been reported without surgical intervention. We report a case of cerebellarmutism secondary haemorrhage from a vermian arteriovenous malformation (AVM), which resolved to ataxic dysarthria after 6 weeks. Embolization of the AVM was performed and the patient's clinical status continued to improve gradually till she became normal 6 months from the insult. The mutism was dueto rupture of the AVM which might correlate the cerebellar mutism with thetransient vasospasm of the blood vessels supplying the cerebellum. It is possible for a spontaneus posterior fossa bleed to result in transient mutism similar to post surgical mutism.
