Cerebellar ataxia and 'occult neuroblastoma' without opsoclonus

Abstract

A case is reported where cerebellar signs in the absence of opsoclonus were associated with occult neuroblastoma. Analysis of the method of diagnosis in previously reported cases reveals the high yield from thorough physical examination supplemented by careful examination of roentgenograms of the chest and abdomen; this combination is recommended whenever unexplained or atypical cerebellar signs are present in a young child.
