Arnold-Chiari malformations refer to abnormalities of the hindbrain originally described by the pathologist Hans Chiari from Austria in the 1890s. The essence of the Arnold-Chiari anomaly is the descent of the cerebellar tonsils into the foramen magnum with compression of the medulla oblongata and the development of corresponding neurological symptoms. The Arnold-Chiari anomaly can manifest itself at any age after the action of a provoking factor. This article describes the modern etiology, classification, clinical manifestations, as well as diagnostic and treatment methods of Arnold-Chiari anomaly.
