ABSTRACT  Dandy–Walker syndrome (DWS) is a brain malformation of unknown etiology, but several reports have been published indicating that there is a causal relationship to various types of chromosomal abnormalities and malformation syndromes. In the present article, we present a bibliographical survey of several previously issued reports on chromosomal abnormalities associated with DWS, including our case of DWS found in trisomy 18. There are various types of chromosomal abnormalities… Expand
Ocular findings in a case of trisomy 18 with variant of Dandy-Walker syndrome.
TLDR
A case of trisomy 18 with ocular pathology and variant of Dandy-Walker syndrome is presented, a combination that has not previously been reported. Expand
Brain abnormalities in patients with Beckwith–Wiedemann syndrome
TLDR
It is suggested that brain malformations may present as a finding within the BWS phenotype when the molecular etiology involves imprinted domain 2 at 11p15.5, which is involved in normal midline development of several organs including the brain. Expand
Dandy-Walker syndrome with duplex kidney abnormalities in trisomy 18 - A rare case report.
TLDR
A case involving a 39-year-old pregnant female with a case of trisomy 18 associated with Dandy-Walker malformation is reported, and the report presents an unusual case that supplements the knowledge of this condition. Expand
“Understanding Adam” Multiple Reciprocal Translocations: Complex Case Presentation
TLDR
A case review of a newborn diagnosed with a complex chromosomal rearrangement, as demonstrated through a painted chromosomal analysis, will increase understanding of chromosomal anomalies and their implications in embryological development and clinical presentation. Expand
Dandy Walker Malformation
Dandy-Walker malformation (DWM) or syndrome is a posterior fossa anomaly characterized by agenesis or hypoplasia of the vermis and cystic enlargement of the fourth ventricle causing upwardExpand

TLDR
Most cases of DWS are sporadic, although familial occurence has been reported and several individuals with de novo interstitial deletions of 3q have been identified. Expand
Dandy-Walker malformation and Wisconsin syndrome: novel cases add further insight into the genotype-phenotype correlations of 3q23q25 deletions
TLDR
The data indicate that the 3q deletion is a rare defect associated with DWM, and suggest that the hemizygosity of ZIC1-ZIC4 genes is neither necessary nor sufficient per se to cause this condition. Expand
Dandy-Walker Syndrome: A Review of New Diagnosis and Management in Children
TLDR
The basic clinic pathologic features of DWS, its diagnosis by other central nervous system (CNS), systemic genetic relatives, and new treatment modalities are described, which might go along with numerous inherited CNS and systemic anomalies. Expand
Dandy-Walker Malformation
TLDR
Dandy-Walker malformation is a rare congenital malformation and involves the cerebellum and fourth ventricle and may be associated with atresia of the foramen of Magendie and, possibly, theForamen of Luschka. Expand
Developmental outcomes of Down syndrome and Dandy-Walker malformation.
TLDR
A case of a 37-month-old child with DS and DWS, who is functioning at the following age-equivalent: gross motor at a 9-mo level, fine motor 6 mo, expressive language 14 mo, receptive language 9 mo is reported. Expand

Prenatal diagnosis of trisomy 9 mosaic presenting as a case of Dandy‐Walker malformation

Partial Trisomy 22 with Dandy‐Walker Malformation
TLDR
One patient with partial trisomy 22 is added who had, in addition to the usual features, Dandy‐Walker malformation, which, to the authors' knowledge, is a previously undescribed feature. Expand
Apparent Fryns' syndrome and aneuploidy: evidence for a disturbance of the midline developmental field
TLDR
It is suggested that amplified developmental instability of the midline developmental field may account for some of the phenotypic resemblances between three infants described recently with features of Fryns' syndrome and various aneuploidies. Expand
Is Dandy–Walker malformation associated with “distal 13q deletion syndrome”? Findings in a fetus supporting previous observations
TLDR
The findings support the previous hypothesis suggesting that haploinsufficiency at a locus within 13q22‐33 due to microdeletions may be responsible for isolated DWM in some of the patients. Expand
Dandy – Walker syndrome and corpus callosum agenesis in 5p deletion
TLDR
A new case of 5p deletion syndrome diagnosed prenatally in association with Dandy–Walker syndrome and agenesis of the corpus callosum is reported, suggesting the use of a specific probe in the investigation of these malformations. Expand
Isolated Dandy-Walker malformation: prenatal diagnosis in two consecutive pregnancies.
TLDR
Evidence suggests that rare families transmit the disorder in an autosomal or X-linked recessive pattern, with a high recurrence risk, in a family with recurrent Dandy-Walker malformation. Expand
Dandy–Walker malformation in an infant with tetrasomy 9p
TLDR
This case, together with two previously reported cases of the same association, indicates that this chromosomal disorder should be looked for in children with Dandy-Walker malformation and abnormal somatic development. Expand

TLDR
It is possible that there is a correlation between the variability of the phenotype and the percentage of trisomic cells in the patient, and the further clinical definition of the syndrome is contributed to. Expand
