a high cervical encephalocele and caudally displaced neural tissue, the medulla oblongata, the cerebellar tonsils, and meninges are present. The posterior cranial fossa is small. The fourth ventricle is not seen. There is hydrocephalus. The tectum is pointed posteriorly. There are a large massa intermedia, and Concave clivus, hypoplastic tentorium cerebelli.
 
High cervical encephalocele and caudally displaced neural tissue, the medulla oblongata, the cerebellar tonsils, and meninges are present and the neural tissue is found herniating into the encephalocele. There is a defect at the posterior parts of C1 and C2. The foramen magnum and the cervical spinal canal are larger than normal. There are medullar kink and supure. Syringomyelia is seen in the cervical and thoracical spinal cord.
