Abstract
Chiari malformations are brain stem anomalies with or without spinal canal involvement. Type III is the rarest of the Chiari malformations and is characterized by a low occipital or high cervical encephalocele in combination with multiple cerebellar and brain stem anomalies. We report a case of Chiari III malformation of a newborn, who underwent repair of occipital meningoencephalocele and endoscopic third ventriculostomy. We present the case with a review of related literature.
Key Words: Chiari III malformation
