Chiari Malformation in Children and Adolescents
MEDICAL CITY DALLAS - DALLAS, TX - FEBRUARY 5, 2020
"What does this mean and what do we do now?" This is a common question that patients come in asking neurologist Dr. Andrew Hurd
after an MRI suggests a "Chiari I malformation
Dr. Hurd details what many would consider a "typical" Chiari I malformation and describes what "low tonsils" are. He also talks in detail about headaches: what do we know about the causes of headache? What is the difference between headache and migraine? What are the different types of headache? And how can they be treated best, according to their root cause? This is particularly important because a primary headache disorder is possible to coexist with Chiari I malformation!
