Rare Association of Dandy Walker malformation and Occipital Meningocele
We present a 3month old child of Dandy-Walker malformation associated with occipital meningocele. Small numbers of cases of Dandy-Walker malformation with occipital meningocele have been described in the literature before and this is the first one from our second opinion practise. Communication between the posterior fossa cyst and the occipital meningocele may have compensated for the increased intracranial pressure in fetal life.
