JOIN US AS WE MAKE CHIARI KNOWN TOGETHER!!!

There are so many debates and controversial topics surrounding Chiari Malformation, but did you ever ask yourself why? Is Chiari just a congenital defect or can there be other causes for the hindbrain prolapse? If Chiari is nothing but a small posterior fossa, why do they only measure the tonsillar herniation? Is the “3-5 mm rule” completely insignificant? If so, why? Why do we have so many symptoms that doctors think are unrelated?
