ABSTRACT
A case of whole-spinal syringomyelia in a pediatric patient with the Chiari malformation type 1 is reported. The patient manifested only acute weakness of the right lower extremities and showed dramatic improvement to normal range immediately after posterior fossa decompression. Comparative analysis was done for the serial size reduction in 3 dimensional magnetic resonance imaging . The literature was reviewed for the Chiari 1 malformation with syringomyelia.
Key Words: Chiari malformation; Foramen magnum decompression; Syringomyelia; 3 dimensional MRI
