Chiari Malformation
 
  This rare condition is a malformation of the base of the skull and brain that results in the lower portion of the brain protruding through the foramen magnum - the opening at the base of the skull. The protruding brain can block the normal flow of the fluid that protects the brain and spinal cord, leading to elevated pressure in the brain and a wide range of problems.
