Abstract A 53-year-old man presented with a sudden onset severe headache associated with ataxia. His family observed labile emotions and frequent episodes of crying. Investigations revealed a pontine cavernoma with evidence of bleeding. The lesion was treated conservatively. Over approximately 6 months, the patient's ataxia improved and he recovered from the crying episodes. To our knowledge, pathological crying has not been previously associated with brainstem cavernoma.
