Abstract :

Lhermitte-Duclos disease is a rare cerebellar dysplastic gangliocytoma. The most common symptoms include headache, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, and imbalance. The typical appearance on cranial magnetic resonance imaging is hyper-intensity on T2-weighted images and hypo-intensity on T1-weighted images. The disease generally presents with benign progress. Development of obstructive hydrocephalus is an indication for urgent surgical intervention and surgery outcomes are satisfactory. Orthostatic hypotension is a very rare clinical presentation of this syndrome and ours is the second case of orthostatic hypotension to be reported in the literature.
