In brief: Cerebellar Ataxia
Acute cerebellar ataxia is defined as the sudden loss of coordination or abnormal gait due to abnormal function of the cerebellum. Causes are vast, and include tumors, infectious diseases, and genetic (inherited) etiologies.
This is best managed by a neurologist (specialist in the nervous system).
