The American Journal of Forensic Medicine and Pathology: March 2000 - Volume 21 - Issue 1 - p 83-85 Buy Abstract A case of a suicidal death associated with autopsy findings of right cerebellar and vermian agenesis is described. A review of the literature points out the various recurrence of agenesis, symptoms, and the likelihood of motor deficits. The singular coexistence of only behavioral and intellectual deficiency with suicidal inclination in an adult man with partial cerebellar agenesis is discussed. © 2000 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
