2 doctors agree
In brief: Depends
Chiari i malformations may have no symptoms or headaches.
Other chiari malformations may possibly lead to a shortened life span (for instance due to respiratory failure). Chiari ii may also have paralysis below an associated chord malformation. Chiari iii and IV are more severe.
