A 10-year-old girl exhibited severe cerebellar ataxia following acute enterocolitis, and was diagnosed as having acute cerebellar ataxia (ACA). MRI of the brain in the acute stage revealed moderate swelling of the cerebellum and abnormal signal intensity enhanced with gadolinium in the cerebellar hemisphere. This is the first report of an ACA case with positive gadolinium enhancement. Cases of ACA with MRI abnormalities are reviewed and the clinical entity of ACA is discussed in association with autoimmune encephalitis.
