Abstract

Cerebral malaria is caused by P. falciparum and may manifest in several ways. These include disturbances of consciousness; acute organic mental syndromes; movement disorders; focal neurological signs; and acute personality disorders. Disorders of consciousness are the most frequent, while disorders of movement are uncommon. Two cases of acute cerebellar ataxia have been recently reported by Illangasekera and de Silva in this country. This case report documents a rare manifestation of cerebral malaria - namely an encephalopathy with acute extrapyramidal symptoms.
