Abstract

Spinal deformity is an important clinical manifestation of Chiari I malformation (CM-I) and syringomyelia. Here we report the result of an 8-year follow-up of a 13-year-old girl with severe scoliosis associated with Chiari malformation and a large syringomyelia. The patient presented at our hospital at the age of 13 with a 68° scoliosis. Magnetic resonance imaging showed Chiari malformation and a large syringomyelia. Neurosurgical treatment involved foramen magnum decompression and partial Cl laminectomy, but the scoliosis still progressed. We present the first case report of a rare course of scoliosis in a patient with CM-I and a large syringomyelia.
