ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Chiari I Malformation

History: The patient is a 24 year old female who presents with paroxysmal episodes of loss of fine motor control of all of her extremities. The episodes last several hours and involve slurred speech and difficulty walking. She presented to the hospital for evaluation.

No MeSH data available.


Routine MRI of the brain without contrast was performed.  There is cerebellar tonsillar ectopia with the cerebellar tonsils projecting 2.5 cm inferior to the foramen magnum.  This is consistent with a Chiari I malformation.  The signal of the brain substance appears normal.  There is no evidence of edema, mass effect, hemorrhage, or infarct.
