Abstract: Progressive ataxia and palatal tremor (PAPT) is a rare distinct clinical entity characterized by symptomatic palatal tremor associated with progressive ataxia 1,2 . Few cases have been described in literature, and MRI findings show, in most cases, cerebellar atrophy and bilateral olivary hypertrophy with signal change 1 . We report a case where MRI study at 3T demonstrated marked bilateral olivary complex hyperintensity at T1, with magnetization transfer contrast pulse (MTC) sequence, which was subtle at conve… Show more
