Abstract: 
Background: The cerebellum is the most important portion of the brain, which audits our acts and establishes balance. Symptoms from a cerebellar stroke happen suddenly. In addition to specific cerebellar signs and symptoms, other common symptoms of a cerebral stroke include dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, double vision, tremor, and vertigo. These symptoms can be confused with other situations because they are nonspecific. In many cases, these symptoms are ignored. Clinical Presentation and Intervention: Here, we report a case of an apparent healthy middleaged man with a large hemispheric cerebellar infarction presented just with a new onset headache and transient mild and nonspecific symptoms including mild left side ptosis and relatively impaired tandem gait which resolved rapidly without obvious and permanent neurological problems. Conclusion: Nonspecific symptoms should alert physicians to examine unusual manifestations of cerebellar infarction, which might be missed if they do not suspect it and do not examine accurately.
