In brief: Same thing. But:
There are 4 types of arnold-chiari, or simply chiari, malformations and they all describe malformations of the hindbrain.
This should not be confused with budd-chiari syndrome, which happens when a large blood clot blocks the hepatic vein. All named after hans chiari, late 19th centry pathologist from austria.
