New considerations about Chiari-like malformation, syringomyelia and their management

Summary

Chiari-like malformation (CM) is a developmental condition, characterised by a conformational change and overcrowding of the brain and cranial cervical spinal cord.

This article aims to update the veterinary profession on these conditions, and provides a guide to diagnosis and treatment of clinically relevant disease.
