|Remote cerebellar hemorrhage (RCS) is a rare complication after supratentorial neu-rosurgical procedures (0.2-4.9%) and even less common following spinal surgery, related to acute CSF hypovolemia. The cerebellar cognitive affective syndrome (CCAS) also called as Schmahmann's syn-drome, characterized by deficits in lan-guage, visual spatial and executive functions, and affective dysregulation, is an under recognized manifestation of cerebel-lar damage. We present the case of a 66 year old male who was presented with an acute cerebellar motor syndrome after a postoperative incidental acute drainage of CSF after a cervical wound revision of a posterior C1-C2 fusion for an unstable D'Alonzo type III odontoid fracture. The head CT showed an acute remote cerebel-lar hemorrhage. In further neuropsycho-logical test, the patient was found to have a cognitive affective cerebellar syndrome.|
