Abstract

We report the case of a 24-year old Indian man who presented with: high fever; drowsiness; an eschar and gross cerebellar dysfunctionwith horizontal gaze nystagmus; ataxic speech; and truncal ataxia. Scrub typhus was diagnosed by serological tests.This is the first case of a pure cerebellar involvement as the onlymanifestation of scrub typhus in the published literature.
