In 2 cases of infants with the Chiari II malformation, a prepontine cyst presented in association with the hind-brain abnormalities characteristic of the Chiari II syndrome. Both infants presented with bulbar dysfunction and had poor outcome despite decompression of the cerebellar tonsillar herniation and drainage of the pre-pontine cysts. No such association between prepontine lesions and Chiari II has been described previously. Copyright (C) 2000 S. Karger AG, Basel.
