Disorders of the cerebellum or its connections can result in ataxia characterized by imbalance and incoordination of gait, limbs, speech, and eye movements. The pathologic changes may be confined to the cerebellum or simultaneously affect other parts of the central nervous system or peripheral nervous system. Ataxias are generally classified as acquired, inherited, or sporadic. The differential diagnosis is broad and daunting; however, a detailed history and examination can rapidly narrow the list.
