Abstract

BACKGROUND: With the advent of MRI, the diagnosis of Chiari I malformation is being made in younger patients, often with minimal or no neurologic symptoms.

CLINICAL FEATURES: The symptoms and signs of a Chiari I malformation may be related to the compression of neural and/or dural structures at the cranio-cervical junction or may be related to the associated syringomyelia. Scoliosis is a particularly important and common finding in those children with syringomyelia.
