Abstract

Three cases of cerebellar vermis agenesis are reported and the relevant literature (19 other cases) is reviewed. Other posterior fossa malformations, such as a mega-cisterna magna, arachnoid cyst and Dandy-Walker syndrome, are discussed both from the pathological and clinical view point. We put forward a hypothesis that agenesis of the cerebellar vermis and Dandy-Walker syndrome could be regarded as two different stages of the same malformation.
