Dear Editor: We read with interest the article by Tubbs et al. postulating the concept of Chiari V [1]. We congratulate the authors for the case and for reporting a unique phenomenon. As an extension of their postulation, we would draw the author’s attention to our previous article on an allied situation of temporal lobe herniation in a similar clinical setting of open spina bifida with hydrocephalus [2]. We would also draw the authors attention to the MRI of the patient we had reported (Fig. 1…

A new form of herniation: the Chiari V malformation
First to the authors' knowledge, a patient presenting with herniation of the occipital lobes into the neck is described, the first to the knowledge, of the Chiari malformations.
Temporal lobe herniation of developmental origin: a novel radiological association with open spina bifida and Chiari II malformation
It is proposed that the cerebral uncalherniation in this described child with Chiari II malforma-tion may be a sequel of the open spinal defect-associated pressure gradient between the supratentorial compartment and infratenorial compartment, existing prior to the closure of the CSF leak at the spinal level.
Central nervous system anomalies associated with meningomyelocele, hydrocephalus, and the Arnold-Chiari malformation: reappraisal of theories regarding the pathogenesis of posterior neural tube closure defects.
The frequency and pattern of brain malformations associated with neural tube defects of some children with meningomyelocele suggest that such mal Formations may seriously affect intellectual outcome.

The present review discusses the life of this seventeenth century anatomist, physician, and priest/bishop and highlights his contributions to neuroanatomy.
