WHAT IS CHIARI?
Chiari (pronounced key-are-ee) Malformation is a brain abnormality that causes the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls coordination and muscle movement, to protrude into the space normally occupied by the spinal cord. Chiari malformation sometimes happens because the space at the back of the skull, where the cerebellum sits above the spine, is too small or is unusually shaped.
Chiari Malformation (CM) was first identified by Dr. Hans Chiari in 1891
