Özet

Enteric fever is a common infectious disease of the tropical world. Characteristic presenting features include fever, relative bradycardia, diarrhea or constipation, and abdominal pain. Central nervous system involvement is not rare and has a wide spectrum of presentation in enteric fever. Complications such as meningism, delirium, coma, and convulsions have been reported often. However, isolated acute cerebellar ataxia associated with enteric fever is rare.
