Dengue fever is caused by dengue virus of Flavivirus family transmitted by Aedes aegypti. It causes acute febrile illness with various constitutional symptoms with bleeding manifestations and shock in some instances. Neurological involvement has been frequently reported reported. However, cerebellar involvement is very rare. Here we report a case of 32-year-old male patient presented with fever of 8 days, giddiness, unsteadiness of gait with swaying to the right, slurring of speech and incoordination. Diagnosis of acute cerebellitis was made, and involvement of the cerebellum in this patient was attributed to dengue fever. Patient treated for dengue fever, cerebellar symptoms were gradually improved in the course of hospital stay. He got discharged and on follow-up there was complete resolution of cerebellitis.
