Atypical cerebellar slump syndrome and external hydrocephalus following craniocervical decompression for Chiari I malformation: case report.

Abstract

Symptomatic cerebellar slump (CS) and external hydrocephalus (EH) are amongst the rarer complications of foramen magnum decompression (FMD) for Chiari I malformation (CM). CS typically presents with delayed onset headache related to dural traction or with neurological deficit offsetting the benefit of FMD. EH, consisting of ventriculomegaly along with… (More)
