Congenital ocular motor apraxia is rarely associated with brain tumors. A 10-month-old girl with normal vertical eye movements and head thrusting to initiate horizontal saccades is presented. CT brain scan revealed a midline posterior fossa mass and histopathology confirmed the clinical diagnosis of lipoma. Unlike previously described cases of posterior fossa brain tumors associated with congenital ocular motor apraxia, this patient showed persistent ocular motor apraxia despite complete resection of the tumor.
