f19-poljradiol-79-479: Sagittal T1-weighted MRI demonstrating a small posterior fossa with a low-lying tentorial attachment posteriorly. The tectum is beaked (white arrow) and partial corpus callosum agenesis is present.

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. Variable degrees of fusion of the colliculi and tectum result in prominent beaking and inferior displacement of the tectal plate. In these cases, the appearance of the pointed tectum is called tectal beaking (Figure 19) [21].
