Hemihypertrophy and the Chiari I malformation.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • We report two children with hemihypertrophy and Chiari I malformation (CIM) and review the extant medical literature regarding CIM and overgrowth disorders. We propose that these two entities do not represent a spurious association but rather share a common dysembryology of mesoderm.
