- Acute cerebellar ataxia is a rare initial presenting feature of neoplastic meningitis (NM), particularly in gastric cancer. The authors report a 61-year-old woman with acute cerebellar ataxia secondary to NM from gastric cancer, which was not accompanied by other symptoms commonly associated with NM at initial presentation. It is suggested that NM should be considered in the differential diagnosis of cancer patients with acute cerebellar ataxia.
