Wernicke encephalopathy is usually accompanied with peripheral neuropathy, known as dry beriberi. In contrast, wet beriberi presenting as cardiovascular symptoms rarely occurs. The acute type of wet beriberi can be fatal, if untreated quickly. It is reported that the cerebellar vermis has a role of the coordination and control of cardiovascular and autonomic reflex activities. We report a 58-year-old man showing acute wet beriberi in Wernicke encephalopathy with cerebellar vermis lesion.
