Transient mutism, without disorders of consciousness or cranial nerve deficits, arising after surgical operations on the posterior cranial fossa is a recently described entity. To date 22 cases have been reported, to which we add the present case (the first report of the syndrome in an adult). We review the salient features of the syndrome in the light of the published cases and speculate on the underlying physiopathology.
