A:   Thanks for consulting ATD. MRI suggestive of Chiari malformation. It is spectrum of congenital hindbrain abnormalities affecting the structural relationships between the cerebellum, brainstem, the upper cervical cord, and the bony cranial base. It is dealt with surgical intervention depending on type of malformation and associated clinical picture. Consult Neurosurgeon for further advice and treatment. Wish you best of luck.
