Özet

We present the case of a 13-year-old girl with pseudotumoral hemicerebellitis that recurred 22 months after the first episode together with conventional MR imaging findings and diffusion-weighted imaging and MR spectroscopy findings. A mirror pattern of involvement was present with the contralateral hemisphere affected in the second episode. Recurrent hemicerebellitis is unique and recognition of the radiological findings allows accurate diagnosis that can be a challenge clinically.
