Abstract

Craniometaphyseal dysplasia is a rare genetic condition characterized by progressive thickening of bones in the skull and metaphyseal abnormalities in the long bones. This disorder often causes progressively symptomatic cranial nerve compression, but in rare cases foramen magnum stenosis may lead to quadriplegia. Chiari I malformation with craniometaphyseal dysplasia is extremely rare. The authors report on a 25-year-old woman with myelopathy due to Chiari I malformation along with craniometaphyseal dysplasia. There are only four previous case reports of this condition. The authors present here the fifth case report of this rare condition and summarize its characteristics.
