Transient acquired stuttering in a child.
We describe a case of a 9-year-old girl who, after removal of a cerebellar tumour and a secondary right temporo-parietal epidural haematoma, developed transient stuttering, with signs of right hemispheric involvement. Her speech behavlour was very similar to stuttering associated with acquired neurological disorder in adults and different from developmental stuttering and dysarthria subsequent to posterior fossa tumour surgery. Acquired stuttering is rarely reported in children and we think that it was the result of combined right hemispheric and cerebellar dysfunction in this case.
