Snake envenomation is a frequently encountered problem in developing countries, including India. Wide spectrum of clinical manifestations like bleeding diathesis, neuroparalysis, are commonly seen and discussed. Certain delayed complications like cerebellar ataxia, neuropathy, etc are rarely encountered. These present once the acute stage is over but once these manifestations develop, they tend to cause long term morbidity and disability in the victim. We, hereby present a case of Neuroparalytic snake envenomation developing cerebellar signs, after the neuroparalysis was recovered. Only two cases with such delayed features have been reported in literature.
