The Teaching Point

Symptoms of diplopia, ataxia, and dizziness could all be attributed to multiple sclerosis, and Lhermitte-Duclos disease could have easily be overlooked. The key finding in Lhermitte-Duclos disease is the corduroy-like appearance of the cerebellar tumor on Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

Abstract
ABSTRACT We report the case of a patient with pre-existing multiple sclerosis, who presented with horizontal diplopia, and a prior episode of progressive ataxia and dizziness lasting one week. While initially attributed to multiple sclerosis, subsequent imaging demonstrated a concurrent left cerebellar gangliocytoma, also known as Lhermitte-Duclos disease.
