Ihave congenital hydrocephalus with vp shunt And now im suffering headache every day , back and shoulder pain , arms pain , dizzy, not clear vision almost 4 years i went to see a neurosurgeon and he requested an mri for the brain and cervical spine and the result came with bilateral colpocephaly of the occipital horns of the lateral ventricles with a partial ageesis of the posterior aspect of the corpus callosum and mild tonsillar descent approximating 8.8 mm through the foramen magnum. Giving the combination of congenital brain chainges , the picture probebly related to arlnold chiari malformation , other but less possibility beings a tonsilar heriation aquired from the prolonged vp shunted . No cervical cord syrinx. No transependymal csf seepage.
So could it be chiari and can people with hydrcephalus develop chiari in any time in thier life?
