Wernekink commissure involves the decussation of superior cerebellar peduncle (SCP) in midbrain. We report an elderly hypertensive, diabetic man who developed slurred speech, ataxia, and internuclear ophthalmoplegia. MRI examination revealed an unusual ischemic stroke involving Wernekink commissure. This rare stroke pattern involving decussation of SCP occurs in the setting of small arterial disease. The association between the anatomic location of the stroke and clinical findings is noteworthy.
