MedLine Citation:
PMID:  8165509     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Mutism occurring after posterior fossa surgery has been reported in children. We report an adult case of transient mutism after resection of a large tumor in the right cerebellar hemisphere. Although the patient was fully alert and without lower cranial nerve palsies and long tract signs, he had been mute for 4 days after surgery. Postoperative magnetic resonance imaging scan showed a slight hemorrhage in the region of the resected tumor. The relevant literature is reviewed.
