Background: Dengue is one of the most rapidly spreading vector-borne viral diseases worldwide, presenting as acute febrile illness with uneventful recovery in majority of cases. However, a small minority of patients may present with rare neurological involvement as well. Case Report: We present a patient of non-structural protein antigen 1 (NS1) positive dengue who presented with features of intermittent vertigo associated with unsteadiness of gait leading to difficulty in walking suggestive of cerebellar ataxia following recovery from acute febrile illness, which resolved subsequently during hospital stay. Conclusion: Dengue cerebellitis is one of the rare but a recognized and self-limited manifestation of dengue infection that should be considered in every patient of dengue fever particularly in endemic areas, who present with features of cerebellar involvement.
