The involvement of the cervico-medullary junction leading to atypical motor and sensory features presents a clinical conundrum and diagnostic challenge to the physician. We hereby present a case of platybasia with syringomyelia as a result of dynamic cervico-medullary junction obstruction leading to ataxia with cranial nerve involvement as well as with dynamic sensory symptoms in a 31 year old Indian male falling in the Arnold-Chiari malformation spectrum.
