Mentions: Chiari type II is the most common type of Chiari malformation. It is also known as Arnold-Chiari malformation. In 90% of cases there is also myelomeningocele, hydrocephalus, and corpus callosum agenesis. In these cases, prepontine migration of the cerebellum at the level of the middle cerebellar peduncle gives the brainstem an angel wing appearance on axial MR images (Figure 17) [21].
