Cerebellar mutism syndrome refers to a specific disorder in which a complete but transient loss of speech, followed by dysarthria, occurs following resection of intrinsic posterior cranial fossa tumors or cerebellar hemorrhages, or upon trauma. Written and edited by leading international authorities in the field, it provides an in-depth review of knowledge of the definition to treatment of cerebellar mutism, with an emphasis on its anatomical features and treatment modalities, medical or surgical. Moreover, it gives clinicians and investigators current evidences and an outlook to future areas of cerebellar mutism and to innovative therapeutic philosophies. This book will represent the first extraordinary book on cerebellar mutism. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
