<p>Body lateropulsion is known to be caused commonly by lateral medullary lesions but rarely by pontine lesions. It is also known to be associated with lesions of the dorsal spinothalamic tract or ascending graviceptive pathways. We herein report the case of a 75-year-old woman presenting with contralateral lateropulsion and cerebellar tremor caused by pons infarction. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of pontine infarction causing both lateropulsion and cerebellar tremor. Our case may be helpful in anatomical studies of ascending graviceptive pathways. </p>
