Enteric fever is a common infectious disease of the tropical world; about 80% of these cases occur in Asian countries. With the advent of newer and effective antibiotics, the disease usually runs a benign course with complications occurring only in a miniscule minority. Enteric fever with its classical symptoms and signs is easily diagnosed and managed by most of the physicians and general practitioners. However, when patients present with rare features, the diagnosis and treatment may not be prompt and may be unduly delayed. Shock and encephalopathy are the most common complications. But meningocerebellitis due to enteric fever is a rare complication which has been reported in only 7 cases till date and ours is the 8 th report. Here, we will be discussing a patient of enteric fever who presented with cerebellar signs where our prompt diagnosis helped in starting immediate treatment which led to an uneventful and quick and complete recovery.
