Abstract

Objective Chiari malformation type-I (CM-1) is described radiographically as a simple displacement of the cerebellar tonsils at least 5 mm below the foramen magnum (FM). If CM-1 exists due to hyperostosis of the cranial bones, the authors were not able to determine a common consensus for the treatment of CM-1 and syringomyelia.
