Perioperative lumbar drainage of cerebrospinal fluid is commonly used in neurosurgical practice. However, the relationship between lumbar drainage and acquired Chiari malformation is not well established. The authors present an unusual case of paraplegia as a result of acquired Chiari malformation after lumbar drainage. Acquired Chiari malformation can induce compression of cervicomedullary junction and syrinx formation. Foramen magnum decompression is recommended for the solution of such problems.
Key Words: Arnold-Chiari malformation; Iatrogenic disease; Cerebrospinal fluid; Drainage
