General Child Neurology
Chiari malformation describes a group of structural defects of the cerebellum, characterized by brain tissue protruding into the spinal canal. For most patients, Chiari malformation is a congenital malformation, arising from an embryologic defect in the formation of neural and craniovertebral structures. Chiari malformations are often associated with myelomeningocele, hydrocephalus, syringomyelia, and tethered cord syndrome. Some categorize type 1 malformations as “adult type” and type 2 malformations as “congenital type.”
