FURNIEL, Heloisa Martinez; SANTOS, Flávia Heloísa; BERENGUER-PINA, Jose Javier  and  RODRIGUES, Fernanda Maria Paes Milanese. Does the Acute Cerebellitis Play a Role in the Neurocognitive Profile of a Child After its Onset?. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2013, vol.7, n.1, pp.50-62. ISSN 1982-1247.

This study aimed to present the neuropsychological assessment of MC, a seven-year-old girl, who was diagnosed with acute viral cerebellitis. The protocol included cognitive tests, stress and mood scales, behavioral observation, and interviews with family and school. In the neuropsychological assessment, difficulties in crystallized skills, especially in language and numerical cognition domains, were observed. The results of the neuropsychological assessment were discussed to detail her neurocognitive profile and verify to what extent her impairment could be attributed to the acute viral cerebellitis.

Keywords : Language; arithmetic; acute cerebellitis; neuropsychology; learning.
