Arnold-Chiari malformation type I (ACM I) is anatomically defined as the displacement of the cerebellar tonsils below the level of the foramen magnum. Syringomyelia is a condition in which a cavity called a syrinx develops in the spinal cord and is filled with cerebrospinal fluid. Here we report the anesthetic management of a case of ACM I with associated syringomyelia scheduled for suboccipital craniectomy, cervical laminectomy and duraplasty.
