What sort of stroke causes truncal ataxia?

I saw a patient with truncal ataxia (I read it in the notes) but was not sure what sort of stroke would cause this and couldn't find out from the notes where the lesion would be.

A patient suffering from truncal ataxia most probably has a lesion involving cerebellum specifically mid line vermis. You can look for other signs of cerebellar involvement.

I agree, the most likely site of lesion is vermis of cerebellum.
