Abstract
A total of 6 autopsy cases of Arnold-Chiari malformation was examined at
the Department of Pathology of Seoul National University. These cases showed characteristic
features of Chiari type II malformation, i.e., displacement of a portion of the inferior vermis,
whole medulla oblongata and the fourth ventricle into the cervical canal and associated
cerebellar dysplasia. All of the cases had hydrocephalus and accompaning meningomyelocele
at various levels. All cases showed polygyria but not micropolygyria, and in three
cases there were craniolacunia. Three out of 6 cases showed severe malformations of the
extraneural system. These malformations included bilateral renal agenesis, exstrophia splanchnica,
cardiovascular and skeletal abnormalities, etc. On the basis of our observations we
think that multifactorial causes are involved in the pathogenesis of the Arnold-Chiari malformation.
