A 10-year-old girl born with telangiectasias of the lip, trunk, extremities, palms, and soles was found to have an asymptomatic Chiari I malformation without syringomyelia on MRI, and is reported from Children’s Hospital, Alabama. Additional diagnoses in this patient included left hemihypertrophy, thoracic scoliosis, obsessive compulsive disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, and an absence seizure disorder. The Chiari I malformation showed 22 mm of tonsillar ectopia. [1]
