Acute cerebellar ataxia (ACA) is more common in childhood. Stroke, infectious, toxic, immune-mediated, paraneoplastic, structural, and metabolic diseases, and vitamin deficiency are the main diseases causing ACA. There may be neurological symptoms in rotavirus and SARS-CoV-2 infection. The objective of this case report is to highlight ACA which was seen as a coinfection in the course of rotavirus infection with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) without fulminant course.
