Question Arnold Chiari Association with Myelomeningocele

Hello doctors,

It seems that there is a mistake in Kaplan CK Lecture Notes pediatrics book; it says that myelomeningocele is associated with type 1 chiari but it isn't. Myelomeningocele is associated with type 2 Chiari (Arnold chiari malformation)....right?
(it even say so on the next page 227)?

Yes you are right.
  • Chiari I malformation (CM-I) is characterized by abnormally shaped cerebellar tonsils that are displaced below the level of the foramen magnum.
  • Chiari II malformation (CM-II) is characterized by downward displacement of the cerebellar vermis and tonsils, a brainstem malformation with beaked midbrain on neuroimaging, and a spinal myelomeningocele.
