CHIARI-1: When talking about chiari syndrome, usually it means type one which is the commonest type and usually diagnsed incidentally when brain MRI is done to work up for headache.It is an elongation of cerebellar tonsil which is the central part of cerebellum, if it measures less than 4-6 mm below the foramen magna, it stays assymptomatic, or it can cause headache, dizziness, sleep apnea and unsteadiness.
