Those cases were managed with a variety of procedures aimed at addressing the underlying pathogenetic mechanism, and included ventriculo- and cysto-peritoneal shunting, endoscopic fenestration, or direct approach to the cyst by foramen magnum decompression and cyst opening or excision. However, a MRI control showed normalization of the cerebellar tonsils’ position and a significant shrinkage of the cervicothoracic posteroinfsrior cavity Fig.

Pathophisiology of syringomyelia associated with Chiari I malformation of the cerebellar tonsils. The second operation comprised foramen magnum decompression and ample fenestration of the arteriq walls that lead to the resolution of both the tonsillar descent and the syringomyelia.

These patients have been managed with a variety of procedures including foramen magnum decompression, with or without cyst removal, cysto-peritoneal shunting or endoscopic cyst fenestration 28,10, Syringomyelia in association with posterior fossa cysts. Content is updated monthly with systematic literature reviews and conferences. Syringomyelia associated with hydrocephalus and Blake’s pouch cyst.

Br J Neurosurg ; Introduction Arachnoid cysts are benign collections of cerebrospinal fluid CSF that develop as the result of an abnormal duplication of the arachnoid membranes during brain development.

Lateral Medullary Syndrome C Neurosurg Focus ; 19 5 E Surgical treatment of Chiari I malformation: We have reported the second case of the successful management of syringomyelia associated to acquired Chiari malformation secondary to a retrocerebellar arachnoid cyst. Cerevelosa dura mater was closed with a dural graft. In these cases there exists a pressure gradient across the cranial and spinal compartments, due either to increased intracranial pressure, as happens in supratentorial masses or hydrocephalus, or to CSF diversion into the spinal compartment.


Posterior fossa arachnoid cysts roughly represent one fourth of all these congenital pouches. Syringomyelia with Chiari malformation: The production of syringomyelia in the context of the Chiari type 1 malformation has been amply reviewed and is beyond the scope of our study 1, There have been several reports of large arachnoid cysts associated with syringomyelia ,10, Descompresion del agujero magno.

In our view, the management of these patients should be directed at decompressing the foramen magnum and include the removal of the walls of the coexistent arachnoid cyst as it seems to be the crucial factor that accounts for the development of the syringomyelia that these patients present.

From current literature, it becomes obvious that patients with syringomyelia or Chiari malformation must be managed in an individualized manner taking into account the pathogenetic factors involved in their development 1, Morphogenesis of experimentally induced Arnold-Chiari malformation.
