Acute cerebellar ataxia is a well known condition which may affect young children.The typical symptoms are similar to those you descibe here. It is usually caused by a virus and often follows on chicken pox.It is very important to exclude a tumour in the cerebellum which is an area behind and underneath the brain.This is why a brain scan was done. There is no specific treatment available for this illness. I would strongly advise you to take your daughter to be seen by a paediatric neurologist. There are experts in all the main centres in SA.
