    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Chiari malformation type I (CMI) is a morphological diagnosis defined as the inferior displacement of the cerebellum through the foramen magnum. In parallel to this basic definition of CMI, there are diagnoses that co-exist with CMI in selected patients. In addition, there are specific constellations of clinical symptoms and signs reported in the literature that occur non-randomly in patients affected by CMI. There is no established system that categorizes these CMI-related conditions or even defines them as causes or consequences of CMI. Identifying the relationship between CMI and these associated disorders may allow greater understanding of CMI etiology and potentially inform CMI management.
